O we can wait no longer,
we too take ship O soul,
Joyous we too launch out on trackless seas,
Fearless for unknown shores on waves of ecstasy to sail . . .
To the poetry of Emily Isaacson. Follow India Passage: a ship to set sail, a journey in poetry through the verse of lands unbeknownst.
voyage of fortune and disguise,
India Passage was written by Emily Isaacson in 2006, inspired by Walt Whitman's "Passage To India." Emily Isaacson's riveting collection is free verse pieces, and after 25 years of crafting poetry, her lyrical voice and practiced ear produce a carefree and lilting result: the sea, the journey, the ship all come to life in this postmodern poetry with romance and spiritual transcendence as destination.
The Emily Isaacson Institute was founded for research and education in literature, the arts, and medicine. Located in Mission, British Columbia, we feature the writing and analog photography of Emily Isaacson, her work and legacy. A regular visitor of Westminster Abbey here in the mountains, her writing reflects the solitude and mythology of the Canadian wilderness, the sea, the stars and the First Nations people.
