• Star Fall In a Midnight Sky

Poetry is one of those forces that brings to the light hidden, inner dimensions of our earthly journey. Like a polished diamond, poetry has many facets, many faces, and reflects the light in multiple ways.

Star Fall in a Midnight Sky is Denham Grierson’s sixth book of poetry, exploring and celebrating, in multiple ways, the enigma of our existence. The poems seek to bring moments of illumination, clarification of the depths of the ordinary, realisation of what we know but cannot tell.

These poems are fragile, wonderful and beautiful because they take us into the heart of human frailty, awe and desire, where war, illness, plague and age all threaten to steal life away. But the elusive presence of that which is beyond and beneath all remains. We share in the chemistry of eternity. From the Foreword by Andy Tiver

Theologian and educator Denham Grierson wrote his first poems for his school magazine. Those beginnings led into an exploration of poetry over a thirty years teaching career within the United Faculty of Theology and at the University of Melbourne.

Denham Grierson, a retired Uniting Church Minister, first had poems printed in his school magazine. Over the years in his writings and speaking engagements the occasional poem appeared, but only in retirement from thirty years of tertiary teaching, and forty years of ministry, has the time been available to focus on poetry, that access into the depths of our lives, as Denham describes it. There is still time for golf, family, and travel but they too are resources for writing poems.
