Saturday

Brother David 'Shelter from the Storm'

Description

Brother David returns to Llangwm from Caldey Island to present his ninth collection of poetry reflecting the monastic life of prayer in an island setting. Seascapes, the island flora and fauna, the flight of birds, liturgy, memoir and contemporary issues all provide material for the poet's pen.

"... his poems are best seen as icons pointing us to truths beyond the words..."

Kathleen Norris, The American Benedictine Review

"...a remarkable collection by a gifted poet with a quality of insight that is all his own..." Patrick Thomas, The Merton Journal

"...his poems blend the ocean's horizon and the rhythmic call of the waves with a distinctive, reflective, spiritual landscape..."
Nick Spencer, The Tablet

"...Wordsworth's Tintern Abbey is Hodges' Caldey Island..."
Brendan Freeman, Cistercian Studies Quarterly
