Dark Sky Park


‘Dark Sky Park‘ is a collection of poems by Philip Gross that explore our natural world. He imagines the lives of tardigrades, or contemplates the wonder of a dark sky park that bans artificial lights. In every creation, there is awe for the history, continuity and wealth of life on our planet.

Philip Gross uses a variety of poetry forms. There is a difference in tone; humorous (‘Extreme Aunt’/ ‘Extreme Uncle’) to deeply respectful (‘The Toughest Thing You Never Noticed’), saddened (‘Aleppo Cat‘) to enquiring (‘Moon Music’), mocking (homo sapiens), or scathing (‘Extreme Dining’).

‘Dark Sky Park‘ is a monumental collection of poetry in a slight volume. I am overwhelmed by its substance and variety. Bookwagon recommends this superb title highly.
