In his debut publication, Brent Nelson puts forth a compilation of dark poetry written over the years and based largely on his feelings and emotions as he struggled to find his path of truth. Poetically baring his soul, Brent reveals the dark side some of us possess as we transition through difficult and challenging times.
The book is a beautiful combination of poetic expression coupled with visual art that gives the reader a glimpse into the shadows. It is a work of art that resonates with a frequency of very low tones of past, present and future.
The compilation of words and images set forth in 'Out of Darkness' is a work of passion housing deep expressions of the author and artists, and showcasing the beauty of the human spirit in its creative form.
Brent Nelson is a physician with an active primary care clinical practice in the southwest United States. Medicine is a second career, and hopefully the last one in which he will reinvent himself. When not at the office, Brent enjoys listening to music, writing poetry and fiction in the form of short stories, reading fiction, science fiction, poetry, and books with spiritual themes and undertones, and experiencing visual art in all mediums. He is very fond of the outdoors and nature. At least once a year he can be found with his family in the high desert of southern Utah where he relishes the solitude and natural beauty in the region. He feels the desert will speak to anyone who can quiet their mind and relax enough to listen.
