Resurrectionby Patrick Stack
The Resurrection audio recording is of the poem “Resurrection” which is included in Patrick Stack’s first poetry collection, The Parting.
This recording was made by the poet in his home on 12 April 2020 (Easter Sunday).
The poem came out fully formed in the early hours of Holy Thursday 2006 when the poet was awoken by an intense wave of emotion which resulted in the poem. It needed but a few minor tweaks.
The almost miraculous arrival of the poem marked the end of a sixteen year long drought when the poet was unable to write a single line. As such it is the resurrection of the poet himself from his wanderings in the desert.
