      Epic Poetry Reading at Crazy Wisdom Bookstore

      At Crazy Wisdom Bookstore. Saturday, May 13. 7:00-9:00 PM.

      In a Fractured, Divisive World, the Poets of All the Nations Guide the Way Toward Peace...

      The Parliament of Poets: An Epic Poem, by Frederick Glaysher, is a new global, universal vision of life, a tale and chant for our time, a Journey toward healing the psyche of the planet.

      In a world of Quantum science, Apollo calls all the poets of the nations, ancient and modern, East and West, to assemble on the moon to consult on the meaning of modern life. The Parliament of Poets sends the Poet of the Moon on a Journey to learn from all of the spiritual and wisdom traditions. On Earth and on the Moon, they teach a new global, universal vision of life.

      All the great shades appear at the Apollo 11 landing site in the Sea of Tranquility: Homer and Virgil from the Greek and Roman civilizations; Dante, Spenser, and Milton hail from the Judeo-Christian West; Rumi, Attar, and Hafez step forward from Islam; Du Fu and Li Po, Basho and Zeami, step forth from China and Japan; the poets of the Bhagavad Gita and the Ramayana meet on that plain; griots from Africa; shamans from Indonesia and Australia; Murasaki Shikibu, Emily Dickinson, and Jane Austen, poets and seers of all Ages, bards, rhapsodes, troubadours, and minstrels, major and minor, hail across the halls of time and space.

      That transcendent Rose symbol of our age, the Earth itself, viewed from the heavens, one world with no visible boundaries, metaphor of the oneness of the human race, reflects its blue-green light into the blackness of the starry universe.
