Kolin publishes fifth book of poems | People
Dr. Philip Kolin, University Distinguished Professor in The University of Southern Mississippi’s College of Arts and Letters, has published his fifth book of original poetry with the highly respected Catholic press--Kaufmann Publishing. Entitled Reading God's Handwriting: Poemsand available on Amazon.com, each of the book’s 50 poems is anchored in a Biblical parable, prophecy, setting, or allusion.
Kolin pointed out that "the title of my book is ambiguous; it can refer to God's handwriting as well as his handwriting in Scripture, nature and history." God's script/scripture is threaded through the metaphors, voices, and paradoxes of Kolin's poems.
The book opens with the poem "Omega" where God "fingerprints his presence" in "spheres, orbs, and gyres." "Everything comes in 0's, and nothing/From the one who never runs out of numbers." Fittingly, it ends with the poem "Heaven" where God tells readers about their "new neighborhood--Infinity."
