Downside Up

My Kindle books are now available as a collection:

“Collectively, the works serve as a continuum of thought-provoking and insightful perspectives that examine spirituality in relation to the social, political, and religion-based paucities that challenge modern-day human-to-human and human-to-nature relationships.

Rob Taylor takes the reader on a journey that will turn some of our beliefs and cultural biases downside up. The writings do not mince words and are absent the niceties of conventional spiritual discussion. Even his poetry can be a hard-hitting examination of human conduct in the absence of spiritual maturity.”


Northern moons rise and
I breathe ten thousand tides
Caressing anxious shores

Cautiously traversing
Galaxies hitherto concealed
Behind osculating planes

Deep inside my mind, as
I invert the oceans downside up,
Thoughts are racing toward


A torrential metamorphosis
Phasing naive empathies into
Absolute magnitudes of

Causal culpability I share
With etesian winds coercing
Waves upon peaceful seas

“We must not accept the proposition that a relationship with a government, political organization, religion, belief system, corporation, geographical border, or even family constitutes an irreducible primary. The irreducible primary is the human species, and this fact is firmly established by the unique composition and determinative influences of human beings relative to all that exists.”
