The Shape of the Universe and other poemsThe Shape of the Universe

Thoreau pointed out, “It’s not what you look at, but what you see.”  Pat Edwards’ poetry brings her quirky vision to our life here “spinning on a blue planet, / if you can imagine a color called blue” and referencing icons like Buckaroo Banzai.

Favorite poems are Edwards’ that were created to be spoken aloud like, “Relics” and “What would happen if I Danced?”  So be sure you stand up and speak them out loud, “What if I “/ transformed my cube / into my personal mosh-pit / and let it all / shimmy shake gyrate?”

The Mechanism of Memory poems by Pat Edwards

The Mechanism of Memory poems by Pat Edwards

The Mechanism of Memory

Pat Edwards’ poetry carries the rhythm of a high-mileage life with observations that trip and trigger the poetry of your own memory.  As Nabokov said, “The more you love a memory the stronger and stranger it becomes.”  Edwards writes you that “you never suspect the / woman in the sweatpants, an old 10K t-shirt / and the orange kitty socks / has the force to pull you back through time / with just two words:  Red Rover.”

Edwards’ poems are colloquial, but with a unique point-of-view.  The most common comment from her readers is, “I don’t know much about poetry, but I like this, and it made me think.”

The Soul We Share

The Soul We Share is a mind-slam of insightful flashes, life-altering lessons, and poetry that describes Ms. Edwards’ own discovery of a greater understanding of our soul.  Peppered with quotes from spiritual masters, this transformative memoir details her realizations and pratfalls on an internal spiritual expedition – an expedition that comes to the compelling conclusion that we all share the same soul.  The soul is not inside of us; we are inside our soul.TSWS_000-B

The Soul We Share goes against thousands of years of common beliefs, yet evokes a deeply-felt truth and insight: our soul is shared by everyone and everything; it is not yours alone.

Is this what spiritual masters mean when they say that we are all one?  And, if we are all one, why do most of us feel separate and alone?

    Hi Pat, I missed having you as my buddy call this week. But I was happy to find your blog. (You told me about it last week. I looked it up today.) I like how straightforward and clear it is. And catchy – “Spiritual practice for out-maneuvering the scurvy dog inside us all.” Very nice! I shared my own webpage below. I’m struggling to streamline it. You’re most welcome to take a look. I updated the “home” page today, thinking of you as my imaginary reader. Keep well and till next time! Amanda P.S. Three books already! Good for you!!
