listening to the quiet
About the Book
is the third installment to Cooper’s line of poetry following look & see me and fading footprints. As with Cooper’s previous works, we are taken to a place that sometimes can only be found between a thought and a dream. Happy and sad both haunt the following pages. With simple illustrations and striking images this book should reach out and touch a feeling in every reader. Again, listening to the quiet is a continuation of Raymond Cooper’s philosophy and feeling about love and living.
