Poet, musician, computer analyst, and mystic Francis Knoll, in his second collection of poetry, considers the perspective of our modern age, which is facing a stressed and dying world, while also embracing the hope and realization of another hidden destiny.
Through more than forty poems, Piercing through the Silent Veil takes a close look at our apparent world and the thin veil that separates us from a heightened vision and experience of reality. Cognizant of an eventual death, the verses examine life, with its many contradictions and failings, seeking to extract a meaningful and real existence. With a sense of destiny and higher purpose, these poems intertwine the frailty and problems of human life while struggling toward an inner silence and a separate parallel universe of presence. This poetry offers a lyric, metered, and accessible style, alluring with the hope of transporting the reader to a new state of being with a direction that leads one beyond the apparent and static world of forms.
Written from the unique viewpoint, this poetry collection explores the world of appearances, forces, and eventual death, considering another reality defined by spiritual existence.
