"Wheels Turning Inward" is a is a rich collection of over fifty poems, following a poet’s mythic and spiritual journey that crosses easily onto the paths of many contemplative traditions. The artwork at the top of this page, is one image found in the Gordon Moore Memorial stain glass window at Trinity Episcopal Church in Houston, Texas, by the artist Kim Clark Renteria. The image of these three circles, is emblematic of both the Trinity and the title for this new collection of poetry now available from Friesen Press.

In Praise of Wheels Turning Inward

“With an intimate whisper and a gentle touch, Ron Starbuck’s words transport us to a place of pure grace.”  William Miller, author, The Gospel According to Sam: Animal Stories for the Soul

"Ron Starbuck is a master poet who weaves such beauty and truth throughout his work that it brings a reader closer to God."  Julia Ferganchick, PhD

“Ron Starbuck sees deeply beneath the surface of things into the heart of reality.  Through his poetry we encounter the animating Spirit which renders all things sacred and irrevocably connected.”  The Rev. Stacy Stringer, Rector of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Dickinson, Texas

"Ron Starbuck lends his poetic voice to the movement of our spirits and invites us to merge with his journey in an almost prophetic way. His work is more than poetry; it is also meditation, the kind that inspires the mindfulness of God in the deepest reaches of our souls. He has the ability to weave lofty theology with the song of a little bird, and he can do it in such a way that you barely know the difference."  The Rev. David Starbuck Gregory; North Church United Church of Christ, Middletown, New York
