Michael E. Stone, Selected Poems
 

Centered on the dappled dissonance of contemporary Jerusalem and ranging from the Sinai to Armenia and Australia before returning to Jerusalem , Stone takes readers on a journey through geology, geo-politics, history, culture, language and the nature(s) of meaning. Starting with geology and geo-politics, he arrives at the most personal of intersections: watching over the death of a father and caring for a mother through her struggle to survive amid bus bombs in his beloved Jerusalem . The Holy City ’s contradictions — “unclarities ambiguities complexities all” — allow for God’s incomprehensible wholeness while highlighting our own all too uncomprehending brokenness. At our human center, language, poetry, and words, the heart of Stone’s book, connect our fractured existences to the dappled beauty of the world. - Dr. Michael Dickel, poet, lecturer at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Ohalo College in Katzrin
