Bless the Ashes is an urban hymn to elemental influences: Peter Harris's mother and the reverberations of the ethical gifts she gave him during her fifty-seven years on earth; the integrity at the core of cultures crafted under duress by people of African descent; the nourishment of waters, actual and symbolic; powerful music (from the One and 4/4 to symphonic and atonal); as well as the exhilaration of tapping the flow of creativity. These poems are about an adult search for deep humanity and the best of community. This book crystallizes Harris's most expansive quest for a creative voice of individuality and inspiration. With Bless the Ashes, he uses words to blend the imaginative, emotional, and intellectual to get beyond words and into a visceral field that should move anyone participating fully into their human journey.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This new collection illuminates the power and grace of the human heart that never, never gives up. These words have been pulled from the deepest of wells, the one named bona-fide inspiration, the one named old-school hip bone and hug."--Nikky Finney
