Medicine for the soul is the best way to describe the collection of poems in The Lotus Dance. These brilliantly constructed poems weave a remarkable portrait of the joy and suffering we experience in the delicate dance of relationships, our effort to find our life's purpose by looking to spirituality and the stressors social challenges cause us. Alex Andrews cleverly weaves African American, Native American, European and East Asian perspectives on finding love, embracing compassion and fighting injustice.
