If poetry benefits our well-being, then we should immerse ourselves in appreciating this age-old art form. Reading Dark Tides: Poetic Reflections of Life by Rev. Dr. Kevin T. Coughlin Ph.D. has a therapeutic feel to it. This fifth collection of poetry delves into human struggles dealing with emotional and mental pain with strong leanings toward the healing power of faith. Reverend Coughlin’s poems have relaxing rhythms that are at times hypnotic. He writes with emotions that reach out to others who are undergoing similar struggles. The Christian undertones blend well with the imagery as illustrated in one of his poems, “Perched.” Here, the tree is used as the representation of life and death, and that these very same trees are used to make coffins—until a Jewish carpenter has set our souls free.

Our lives are filled with stresses that test our mettle to the limit to see how much we can stand, and sometimes, getting through the day is triumph enough. Art and spirituality are potent forces that can help those with the fewest resources to cope and adjust better to life, and Dark Tides does just that. Rev. Coughlin, however, cautions his readers that his poetry is for educational and informative purposes and not as supplementary material for clinical treatments. Still, after reading this book, one cannot dispute that the themes of isolation, betrayal, self-revelation, and search for meaning contained herein may help to facilitate the transition into a happier way of life. Whether you are personally spiritual or not, this collection of poetry can give you an idea of perspective and wisdom in dealing with the cross that you bear.
