At its centre, the act of composition, versus that of mere writing, is a rolling over—again and again—of that stone of the human spirit. A poet becomes familiar (at home even) with both the rough and smoothed edges of that moved, the cadence of which unearths an innermost song. Verse is a history of this pursuit—in, up, and over—the Word our Song, our tongues that boulder.
I am a Canadian poet, librettist, author, and lay philosopher of Ukrainian and French descent. I enjoy shared works with a host of international composers: versified sermons supplemental to the Divine Office, hymns, cantos, as well as miscellaneous experimental suites. My general areas of interest include: the roots of rhetoric and composition; faith and the poetic exposition; and aesthetic theory and praxis.
