Public Poems testifies to the struggles of God’s estranged children (all human beings) to reunite with our Cosmic Parent (Hana Nim) from whom we were separated due to fall of first human ancestors. These struggles are manifest in contemporary experiences described in everyday, accessible language. This book contains no “poetic” speeches or calculated “difficulties”. I have no interest in displays of academic erudition to tittilate elite intellects. I’m interested in what Whitman calls “a new tongue” that expresses hopes, fears, dreams, dramas of ordinary people searching for true God, true love, true joy, true peace. The new tongue is democratic.
