Communion is Carolyn Brigit Flynn's offering of love poems to the divine, addressed in these poems as Beloved. The poems invoke the author's movement from an urban Catholic childhood into an embodied communion with the sacred presence of the Earth. Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's Book of Hours, each poem uses one of Rilke's lines as its title and springboard. Communion addresses timeless issues of spiritual awakening, loss and communion, and moves the reader through longing and moments of spiritual aloneness into a vivid connection with the sacred Beloved that is resilient and integrated into the rhythms of daily life.
