Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) May 31, 2013 -- Cairenn Rhys' new poetry collection, "Upon Higher Ground-A Collection of Spirit Poetry" (ISBN: 978-1482042733) has been released and is now available on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Cairenn-Rhys/e/B00B4JHMDE). This is the second published collection for this Chicago-based spiritual poet and author of "Warrior of the Deepsake-Journal of a Spiritual Warrior".
"Upon Higher Ground" is a collection of spiritual poetry and prose - a passionate journey of love, the pain of separation and the yearning of the heart. The book begins with her poem, "As Above, So Below" inspired by Hermes' Emerald Tablet of Thoth, and concludes with the title selection, "Upon Higher Ground", a deeply reflective testament to the author's perseverance in life and love. Other poems include "Green Man" based upon the Arthurian legend.
Exploring the transcendence of loss to the height of Divinity, this collection speaks of the beauty of friendship, love, hope, nature and myth.
