Poetry of Love in English
Some comments about
I am truly impressed by the beauty and quality
of what you have done.
Cynics beware! Being Love (Estar Enamorado--each poem is presented in both Spanish and English, a nice touch since, as Bob Dylan said, "Spanish is the loving tongue") is radiant with a higher love. Though these are very clearly love poems, they are more like Rumi than Neruda. Jay finds God through his wife and lover Dabne Rose. "With her sweet lips, I have been kissed by God...." If you've forgotten (poor soul) what it's like to be in that "Sacred Space" that is Being Love, Jay can remind you. He evokes Love at its most transcendent. Thank God I'm in that Sacred Space myself now, too, or it would have left me aching.

The sense of Love that
emanates from your poetry is as deep and profound as I imagine the Original
Jay Ross writes from a place where "we" eclipses "I."
Sufi mystics say "God is love, lover, and beloved." Jay's poems spring from a very personal, sensual experience of this wondrous union and fusion. Here, he celebrates the sudden, unexpected arrival of deep passion at midlife, in the form of a woman who embodies for him love and life itself. It's wonderful the way he makes these poems accessible to as many people as possible, by including a Spanish translation of each.
Wonderful, HIGH book,
Jay. I will treasure it.
