What a cache of treasures this collection is, what a cache of jewels. Some of the poems in Bigger Than They Appear fairly take the breath away--searingly vivid moments of revelation (a long scream scraped from a white-washed wall)--while others startle with sudden tenderness (sparrows flitting through mingled branches), and still others delight with bright flashes of wit and grace. All are reminders of what the best, briefest poems can do: give back the world to us, as it passes, in the mirror of a few well-chosen words. --Cecilia Woloch
There are sharp flashes of light, moments when the miraculous world reveals itself to us swiftly, fully. And, because the mind is also a miracle, the lucky words sometimes arrive to capture that revelation and through it witness what it means to be alive. That is the gift of this gorgeous collection. --Mary Ann Taylor-Hall

A beautiful collection of short poems with sections entitled (just to name a few): "A Field Remembers," "Perfect Dwelling," and "When You Become a Body." This is a thoughtful collection...each poem is a point of light that pierces our ordinary thoughts.
