Short Description: Epidocyle is a collection of poems that encapsulates the totality of existence fragmented into broader components like life; “Life is full of drums of fear/That shivers the buds of hearts”; death; “Death starts immediately life begins./Death blossoms from the seeds/Of life’s radiant flowers.”; eternity; “The same things we live for/Are the same things we die for./The things we live for make our mortality/And the things we die for make our souls/On immortal beds of Eternity/Before curtains of ices or coals.”; heaven; “O Heaven, for your sweet kiss I thirst/ Because there is a golden crown beyond the skies.”; hell; ” The din of Hell falls at the break of dawn/ On foreheads without epitaphs of the Blood.”; and everything earthly or extraterrestrial.
