These poems are responses to, and meditations on, some of the major cards of the Tarot. Other influences include quantum physics, the music of Bach, and theology both orthodox and heretical. From the amusing "Question" that started the universe through a contemplation on Sakharov in exile to a defence of Raven under cosmic persecution, Heart and Stone offers passion and spirit to a dispirited world.
