The Fisherman is the fifth volume of
poetry by the internationally recognized poet Richard Michael Parker.
This collection of 42 poems and 25 original digital artworks have been
carefully selected to represent a story of love on a social theme. Many
of Richard's previous works, are more notable for the theme of love that
weaves itself within them, but this too is love. To be connected to one
another in this story we create together, to be concerned and seek to
manifest that love, not as eros, but as agape, storge, philia, the love
that extends beyond the mere act of loving, this too is love. So in a
way, this too is a book of love poems, only, centered on a more social
theme, rather than the interpersonal love of his previous work.
'Speak the truth in your heart to those that matter,
while you can old friend.
For the ground is hard of hearing, and speaks in stones.
The dead carry the silence with them in the heavy earth,
and they are quiet enough, for all of us.'
