Of the Flame, Poems-Volume 15 by Wendy E. Slater is the second
in the series of her spiritual poetry or "vision quest" poetry to be
published. The poetry continues to chronicle the inner journey of
self-discovery and the Divine, awakening us to our own Truth as we
travel the path, the personal journey, and awaken from the illusory
separation of self and Divinity. Subsequently, self-forgiveness allows
us to surrender to our wholeness without false perfection. When we cast
blame and self-judgment aside, we transform, heal, and reawaken from the
"mythos" of separation and become One.

Of the Flame burns with a passion and longing that leapt right into my heart as I read this fiery collection. Wendy Slater has the marvelous ability to reveal emotions we may not even be aware of. She speaks of the scarring of the earth and how deeply that affects each of us on a spiritual level. Slater maintains that we are globally connected through nature.

I would never
Build a monument
In your name,
But I will plant
A forest in your honor
To see the love and life
We share
Into all.

Her poetry is the manna needed to nourish our tired souls; an awakening to the world within us. Sinking into the wisdom within these pages is time well spent.

Inspiration has arrived
And the purring return
To home and hearth
To ground into the flame
The passion
Of life’s purpose and journey.

I would never build a monument in your name, but I will plant a forest in your honor.
-Wendy E Slater.

Spiritual poetry comes easily to shamanic American poetess, Wendy Slater, who writes from the heart and captures the zeitgeist of the moment.
Troubled by our wounded world, she prefaces her book with an invocation for global peace, all persons coming together in acceptance of each others diversities and commonalities.

There are rats
maiming doves
in the Garden of Eden.

How relevant!

Symbolism of the “I would never build a monument in your name, but I will plant a forest in your honor.”
-Wendy E Slater.

“There are rats
maiming doves
in the Garden of Eden.”

How relevant!

Symbolism of the four basic elements – fire, water, air and earth, feature heavily in the author’s work, the fifth element being our life force, or prana
Slater has a relationship with the divine, and connects with these natural elements in a way that I probably never could; I shouldn’t imagine that she has a secret urge to punch idiots in the face like I do! : )
And there is even a 9½ Weeks-style food porn moment where the author longs for macerated mango and pulped banana to be licked from her body by her lover. Ding, dong!

Her themes are unpretentiously cardinal: love, yearning, cleansing, and escaping.
Slater passionately repudiates fakery and duplicity, and her ‘inner tiger’ has no time for despots or egos:

“The rat is gone
The owl is fed.”

The author is cathartically keen to upturn metaphorical rocks, in order to expose the parasites that lay beneath. I shan’t repeat it here (you’d need to buy the book), but there is a description of a clown-masked paedophile that is just inspired!

Wendy Slater writes with the energy of a tidal wave and is galvanised by the simple things in life that often go unnoticed.
She shoots from the heart
And she shoots from the hip.

A most wonderful read! ...more

This is intelligent poetryof mind, heart, and spirit. Every person who reads *Of the Flame* will take away something different. Each person who delves into these poetic lines will draw from them what they needa healing of psyche, a consciousness of existence.

Every person who reads *Of the Flame* will take away something different. Each person who delves into these poetic lines will draw from them what they need—a healing of psyche, a consciousness of existence.

Here is an example of my understanding of Wendy E. Slater’s dramatic work. She uses repetition for emphasis as is 1501-1502 the line: Where are you? Her question begs the answer, a need to discover not just the physicality but also the emotionality in time and space of the person she is seeking and also her own inner being. Her question is not merely directed to an external someone, but also internally, as when a poet speaks to his/her own self.

Her line breaks enhance and enforce her lyrical, luscious language! In 1507—the poet gives us the whimsical, but in 1524 we are faced with the sublime, supreme, and sovereign declarative of divinity.

This is my body,
My terrain,
My home of worship,
Do not postulate
Nor impose
What is best,
As if a superlative truly existed,
For my body
Knows exactness
Not as a location in times and space
With boundaries and constraints
But as an always
Comfort, home, hearth
Of mine.

I read and continue to read these verses before I write fiction. What a gift of a mindset! Poetry is the language of the sages, the language in which we speak to God and the deific in ourselves.

In these pages, Wendy E. Slater renders us a painter’s palette, replete with colors that can be drawn into stunning landscapes to traverse with infinite care! Here is a score of music, rich in rhythm and balance. Her linguistic paintings are an entire sketchbook that poses yet also responds to soul-searching inquiries. This is not a facile collection to be read in one sitting, but to read and to savor many, many times over. ...more

Love gives, love takes, but the heart is resilient.

The poems in this collection will open your heart to love and its endless possibilities. Love beyond romance and lust, love that unites, brings peace, and reason. And even when the heart is broken, Slaters words offer hope and optimism.

One of my favorites poems is: 1518~ Inspiration has arrived, And the purring return, To home and hearth, To ground into the flame, The passion of lifes purpose and journey.

I found inspiration is these lines from Love gives, love takes, but the heart is resilient.

The poems in this collection will open your heart to love and its endless possibilities. Love beyond romance and lust, love that unites, brings peace, and reason. And even when the heart is broken, Slater’s words offer hope and optimism.

One of my favorites poem’s is: 1518~ “Inspiration has arrived, And the purring return, To home and hearth, To ground into the flame, The passion of life’s purpose and journey.”

I found inspiration is these lines from poem 1520- “I am my own vine and seed, Respect and honor, Unexplainable resiliency And knowing the cycles of the draught, monsoon and even the tsunami.”

Slater’s words hold magic and power, often charming and heart-tugging, filling the pages with moments of elation and despair. The profound verses speak to the turmoil of our world. I was reminded of the brilliant Tonys acceptance speech given by Hamilton author, Lin-Manuel Mirando, “Love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.”
I hope the poet will forgive me for sharing her final verses, but I felt like she laid it all out on the page, writing in her own life’s blood.

“Do not pray for me, Pray for world peace, Do not impose Stricture On me, Ever; as I did not ask Nor would I want your guised favor Trying to manipulate The spirit, Look at yours And unravel it, Not mine to superimpose onto.”

I expected this volume to be a lot like the author's previous volume of Poetry. Much to my surprise it is very different, or maybe I am the one who is different since reading volume 14.
I found a wide range of feelings and experiences described in these pages. There is joy, anger, surprise, and innocence. I discovered a great deal of humor, as well an occasional sinking of sadness.
