Poems Rising to the Occasion
Ronald L Faust
The thread that runs through these poems is a prophetic function of rising to the occasion in bubbling up truth hidden below the surface and at times questioning the status quo. Poetry that can do this serves an important role in facing evil intent and putting us on higher ground to do what is right and courageous and honest. I think poetry should be slightly dissident and have language to move us. Here is a springtime occasion to think and feel these provocative poems.
