One Goes to the Sea

What is it about poetry that so readily connects readers with their Spiritual selves? And is it possible to focus these expanded faculties of perception beyond the page--intentionally, inward?

One Goes to the Sea is a collection of the poet's waking and sleeping flights of fancy, her dream journal sketched poetically and visually illustrated by her daughter.

About Joan Myles

Joan Myles has always been a child of Wonder as well as a spiritual seeker. When she lost her sight at the age of 12, these qualities and writing poetry saved her from despair.

Joan earned a B.A. in Education, a Master’s in Jewish Studies. She married, raised four lively children, worked as a Rehabilitation Teacher, and taught Hebrew and Judaics for over 15 years.

Her first book of poetry, One With Willows, vividly expresses Joan’s child-like joy. She considers her poems to be a kind of footpath for readers, an opening into that place of delight, an invitation to awaken childlike wonder for themselves.

Joan’s words also reveal the invisible link between one human being and another, between humans and Nature, between the physical realm and the Spiritual. The idea of the Oneness of Creation flows through her work, the understanding of living in the world as a journey of discovery, of stepping into and between the various layers and levels of existence. Joan’s latest collection, One Glittering Wing, represents this kind of journey, specifically through her year long passage from the deep pain of her mother’s death toward reconciliation with Life.

Joan currently lives in Oregon with her best friend, who also happens to be her husband.

Reviews of One Goes to the Sea by Joan Myles

I like the vivid imagery and word play in this author's poetry. This collection has a nice mix of rhyming and non-rhyming poetry. The title, One Goes to the Sea, is referenced in her poem, “The Journey,” and it’s easy to see the connection. According to Joan Myles's bio at the end of the book, she “has always been a child of Wonder as well as a spiritual seeker.” This comes through in her poetry, which I highly recommend, even if you’re not into spirituality.
