Reading Peter Levi's Poems 'I think God is the purpose of reason, and is most silent when he is most known. I cannot pretend to enlightenment, God is a kind of unenlightenment.' – Peter Levi, 'Christmas Sermon' It is the very ordinariness of your vision that appeals, how you embed the sacred in the everyday, the holy in the mundane, claiming nothing for yourself, letting the light and your eyes fall upon what surrounds us, noting its specificity as you try to make it new.
