2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ashley H. Perez on May 27, 2013
Format: Paperback
These poems are invitations to contemplation of nature (and our cultivation of the earth) and of less tangible forms of growth and decay. The elegant simplicity of the language makes it easy to miss their formal rigor, but take a bit of time to appreciate that as well. While many of the poems are gentle musings, my favorite is one in which the rawness and hurts of relationship are marked out with just as much sensitivity as its tendernesses are elsewhere.

A beautiful book for the poetry-lover or land-lover.
