These generous poems tell stories of personal history: childhood joys, childhood lessons, and childhood traumas; divorce and grief, family and escape from family; love in many senses; the process and reward of being a poet; the ongoing quest for improvement and serenity; survival and forgiveness; the passage of time and the process of changing; aging and the only way out. they deal with the dying of the present and the presence of the past. They traffic in the many senses of perception (smells of food, sounds of music, colors of light). They celebrate the parts of the body: hands, the skin, and mostly the heart, which is muscle, which is spirit, which is the poet's synecdoche.

THE FLAME OF TRANSFORMATION TURNS TO LIGHT is a book of poems in traditional ghazal form, the first half begun in Turkey, companion volume to "open form" poems written at a later visit, published in 2006 as Love is a Letter Burning in a High Wind (The Ecstatic Exchange). Visiting the epiphany-inducing tombs of Mevlana Rumi and his spiritual companion Shems in Konya, their baraka bathing the journey, the grave of Turkey's great native Sufi poet, Yunus Emre, and traveling through a land of such subtle spirituality, these poems chronicle an imagistic diary through both interior and exterior countrysides, with the second half continued in the same vein at home in Philadelphia.
