——— More About AGATES Poetry ———

When the Cladach staff lived near the Pacific Coast of Northern California, we enjoyed hunting on the beach for agates (a type of semi-precious stone). Sometimes as a wave recedes, one can spot them tumbling in the gravelly sand. This process polishes the small stones to translucence, often revealing mossy patterns inside. These gems uniquely encapsulate the effects of pressures and changes in the formation of our earth home. Yet, examine the depth and design of each agate and you’ll see evidence that these natural processes are guided by a powerful, loving, beauty-creating God.

Life presses, shapes, and forms each of us in unique ways. Poets have the gift of expressing moments along the journey in artful word pictures. The experience of poetry leads to discovery, much like searching for agates in rocky places and along the seashore. We hope you enjoy discovering gems in these collections of heartfelt poetry.
You will find both rhyming and free verse that is honest and real, with a distinctive voice, personal in tone but dealing with universal themes of life and love. …
