From IMMORTAL DREAMS Milenko Županovic’ takes us into PSALMS OF LAST DAYS….
staring down the Apocalypse while facing demons and ghosts and a crisis faith through the ages and beyond. The Poet continues to tread through the mystic territory of prophecy, despair and redemption.
Does he find it? Will you find it? Were you even looking for it and are you or are not looking for it after reading the words, experiencing sometimes bleak divine visions and contemplating what salvages the soul inside or rather what disturbs the void beneath the skin.
Featuring work previously published in VOICES FROM THE FIRE vol. 1 and 3 which is further enhanced by the tapestry woven by Županovic’ in a towering amalgamation of natural theology and Apocalyptic revelations born of turmoil and a self-loathing love for all that constitutes humanity reaching toward an unfathomable eternity sealed with a paradise kiss or the flames of the inferno rendering the soul into ash blown into the dark void of a forgettable desolation, echoes of what maybe the figures we believe are dancing in the kingdom which could be already here, or somewhere else or even never exist at all.
Perhaps the covenant is broken.
in the heart
in the storm
in the desert
in the land
If you liked what you read definitely check PSALMS OF LAST DAYS and pick up IMMORTAL DREAMS if Županovic’s style tickles your fancy…it’s a far cry from some of the stuff DFP usually publishes and is definitely a voice needed to be heard to help unlock confined perceptions and further nurture the seeds of contemplation.
