Frank is a true man of the Great Way. A contemplative poet of the highest rank, breathing out poetry with each exhalation. The Temple of Warm Harmony is an act of devotion, a spiritual roadmap of the Way.

These poems are guideposts, some freshly-painted on roadside signs, others etched onto rocks we may have to dig a little through the underbrush to discover. The digging is the key. “Right outside your door is a wonderworld,” Owen reminds us. His words are an excellent companion for the exploration.

A book to revisit any time you feel disconnected from living in a way that makes you glad to be breathing.

Each poem in this gorgeous book outdoes the next. Frank LaRue Owen’s work is lyrical and wise, overflowing with spirit and soul, delicate but tough. This collection is, indeed, a temple of warm harmony, built word by word from love.
