Description - Triptych by Gilbert Luis R Centina III
Triptych and Collected Poems represents over thirty years of Gilbert Luis R. Centina III's poetic works, which critics have described as "modern poetry at its best," "lyrical" and "eloquent." It cements his reputation as a religious poet who "honors the [Catholic] church's fortitude, individual spirit and conviction, belief and the voyage thereof." Written in four different continents (Asia, Europe and the two Americas), it echoes his own personal quest for that Beauty ever ancient, ever new, as described by Saint Augustine, the spiritual founder of his religious order. That pursuit is by no means without its struggles, which is not a revelation in itself, considering that it is, after all, a part of the human experience, with all its foibles, disappointments and triumphs. But it is a search rooted in the firm belief that when all is said and done, our heart is restless until it finally rests in the bosom of our Creator.
