|About the Book|
The moon figures prominently in Prayer Songs, this first collection of poetry by Gord Bruyere. Structured to reflect a moon cycle and deeply influenced by traditional Anishinaabe cultural teachings, these twenty - eight poems explore different motivations and expression of prayer. Ceremonial song, homage to natural earth forces, cries for relief from anguish, pleas of yearning, declaration and humble words of thanks have their place here. Difficult and painful pasts are recognized but only insofar as the past may be transformed here and now by love, spirit, reflection, balance, light and movement.
