Heaven's Drumhead

About the Book

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
– Pierre Teihard de Chardin, The Phenomenon of Man (1955).
Herb McClees’ selected poems on a variety of topics are like pieces of stained glass from a shattered window whose subject takes a lifetime to discover.  Readers are invited to savor the poems and step back with the poet and imagine the restored window for themselves. Divided in five sections: Heart, Community, Art, Being and Spirit; the poetry follows the stages of life.  The drum is used as an organizing metaphor.  Poems are generally less than a page in length.  They are meant to be savored, read aloud and shared.
