Ordinary Time to Be Published on August 6th

Ordinary-Time-CoverIn Phillip Tippin’s collection, the poet observes his surroundings and squeezes meaning out of rock and tree, water and dirt, and turns it into prayer. Spare scraps of image flit across the page, transforming the seemingly quotidian landscape of middle America into poetry. These are poems to sit with and to contemplate, divulging many layers and textures upon multiple returns.

Darkly Bright Press is humbled to publish Ordinary Time, the first volume of poetry by Phillip Neal Tippin. During a time of social chaos and cultural collapse, it is refreshing to discover a poet whose verse emerges from an ancient tradition. With an abiding love for the beauty of a personal God and His relationship with creation, Tippin’s poetry attests to the healing symmetry he finds in faith and nature.  For a sample of his work and a short interview, please visit his poet’s page.

Available August 6, 2020.
