Raw Thoughts: A mindful fusion of literary and photographic art by John Casey

raw thoughts

 

A radiant collection…

Casey offers in his fine debut a compelling exploration of hope and mindfulness through a beautiful combination of poems and black and white photographic art. The collection is a spiritual voyage, a journey of darkness and despair of a broken heart to liberation and meditation, from there to happiness, and ultimately to love. The collection starts on a dark note (In “Subsistence of Loss,” Casey beautifully gives shape, color, and texture to despair and grief: “The memories fade/the details/The colors, tastes, sounds and moments/Deliquesce, as air in the vacuum of space/But the vast attendant nothing/Fills inexorably with heartache/A sorrow that endures”), but as the book progresses, the tone becomes uplifting, hopeful with almost an ecstatic response to life secrecy by the end. Casey’s masterful use of language and Hussey’s stunning black and white photographic images make for an impressive read.
