The 365 poems during this assortment, one for each day of the 12 months, are a trip via prayer. the target of the poems is to function an accompaniment to prayer, silently, within the kind of a verse. The preliminary proposal of those writings used to be from the Psalms, yet there's referenced fabric during the Scriptures, in addition to occasions that happened in heritage and within the author's everyday life. With just a couple of exceptions, the prayer/poems should not date particular, denomination particular, or maybe particular to the writer simply, yet to everybody. The poems communicate of matters reminiscent of religion, dying, nature, freedom, love, good looks, and historical past. every one poem is meant as a way to stand by itself, self reliant of the others. those poems are designated in that they're prayers first, poems moment, and will be thought of day-by-day devotions, religious meditations, or as a source for pastors of all Christian denominations. they're written in order that they may be "crossover" poetry, and will be appealing to secular tastes to boot.

The enormous job of scripting this many poems introduced the author's recognition to prayer itself, and to the character of inventive expression, which can't be compelled, yet needs to come of its personal. The succeeding "visitations" of the information or inspirations gave cause to think that, now not strangely, the writer had support from the very ONE being written to, and about.

"At a going-away get together years in the past, Jack Bartlett gave me a gift--a folder of his poems, loved items of his middle and brain tying these elements of his being with these of mine. After many, many steps in our pilgrimage, he now bargains simply this sort of present to others. In those prayer-poems his phrases carry for us what his center and brain be aware of of affection, peace, and grace--and a God who catches up all our hearts and minds in loving embrace."

His radiant verses frequently echo the playfulness of G. M. Hopkins, the surprising center jolts of Reynolds rate, and the fierce, psalmic inquisitions and jubilations of King David. three hundred and sixty five days of luminous tanagers and hummingbird wings, 'pink moon seasons' and 'hemlock canopies,' nursing houses and Roman villas, infantrymen and kids, DNA and melanoma, hearth ants and catfish, artwork and song, his personal blindness and visionary ecstasies, the deaths of his mom and dad and births of grandchildren; all visible as presents, on his 'peaceful or tumultuous journey' at the 'trail for your love'--encountering God."
