poems by Stewart S. Warren are the ongoing exploration of the
individual evolving with and through the World Soul—poems of
recognition, angst and wonderment, sightings of beauty, and
acknowledgments of the innate wisdom and power that is moving us
through this time of Great Turning. Though some pieces describe
mundane (worldly) encounters and events, some delightful, some
alarming, they nevertheless carry the signature of the awesomeness
of the human capacity for transformation, the ingredients for
reconnection with our self, this patient and powerful planet, and
that which breathes us into form.
The lyric and astute introduction by
Carmen Sorrenti illuminates the Eleusinian Mysteries, bringing the
intelligent power of those myths forward for anyone seeking
relevance and reconnection in this crucial historic moment. The role
of Triptolemus in those mysteries comes to life as appropriate
orientation for the masculine in our immanent transition.
Arriving Since Dawn
poems of personal initiation
The subtitle of this work, initiation,
might suggest the obtainment of a thing, a single event or the
acquisition of a status. Rather, initiation, as Stewart Warren
experiences it, is preparation for entry into a new phase of
personal evolution. The poems in Arriving Since Dawn are not the
thing itself, but always pointers, a getting ready, an attempt to
translate into viable symbolism or correspondence the energies that
reveal the trajectory of our becoming. Some of this work has the
rough edge of outlaw hurt songs, some of it feels like ceremony.
Not in accord with any single
tradition, the poet uses what he believes is the only true compass,
his direct experience and verification of the heart. All is
personal alchemy here and therefore replete with heartache as well
as hope. Love rules in these poems, in these explorations where the
recognition and casting aside of that which is “not self” is the
fire and water that burns and washes, that transforms. There is a
felt sense in this poetry that the earth is wise, consciousness is
safe, and life is ever conspiring on our behalf.
In Time with Her
A collection of twenty five poems
that find awe in place, solace in silence, the mighty heart
yearning, and the soul present and available.
In Zig-Zag Ascension, Stewart
Warren's alchemy of words and key phrases offer us clear touchstones
of meaning and generously leave us in freedom to flesh them out in
ways that are our own. Always mining his own depths, while staying
keenly aware of the natural world, he ties the two together so
tight, it leaves you slightly breathless. Here Warren has created
magical moments for us to inhabit, and each poem makes us
increasingly aware of our dual-citizenship, that of both heaven and
the juice that moves
In this, his twenty second poetry
collection, Stewart Warren returns to the fundamental wisdom of his
beloved American Southwest and his personal journey through ever
deepening landscapes of mystic portent. With a foundation of the
Western Tradition, both native and Hermetic, the voice of the
troubadour considers the emergent heart of humankind in a
down-to-earth vernacular that is both rhythmic and lyric.
