In this pristine collection of poems, Ryan Oelke explores themes from the spiritual life including longing and freedom, awakening and relinquishment, rebirth and renewal. These poems are intimate, immediate, and heartfelt, revealing the transcendent nature of love while remaining loyal to tenderness of our ordinary human life. ~ Diane Musho Hamilton Sensei
In Poems for Wayfarers and Wanderers, Oelke beautifully continues the great tradition of erotically profound poets. Aching and eloquent, his mystic muse keeps us drifting through caverns and cathedrals in the human enigma. I highly recommend this artful offering from a rapt passionary.” ~ Stuart Davis, Musician, Artist, Director of Sex, God, Rock ‘n Roll
