• Music From A Breaking Wave

Music From a Breaking Wave is a new selection of poems from Uniting Church Minister Denham Grierson.  As in his previous volumes Turning in Time and Sharing Water by the River, he suggests that the mystery of the divine and the purpose of life are found not only in Scriptures, creeds and formal occasions of worship but in everyday encounters with nature, people, situations and the ordinary 'stuff' that shape our lives and give them meaning.

The poems witness his personal and faith-filled conviction that all poetry seeks the extra-ordinary buried in the ordinary; and in the tradition of the model parable teller, his poems are themselves music to surprise, delight, challenge; and, above all, to celebrate and be thankful for the richness of our lives.

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.
