The opening poem is a haibun, a combination of prose and haiku developed by the poet Bashō as a way to chronicle his journeys. This book holds many journeys, through part of the year, through lifetimes, through cycles of legend and history. Sometimes these all weave together in one poem: Amergin, written about the poet who claimed Ireland by naming himself in her landscape, links this heroic poetical act to the way a toddler names the world, to how we struggle to remember what we already (might) know, and how we lose language as we approach the end of life.
A strong thread throughout the collection is a celebration of the reemergence of the divine feminine. We see, through the many ways Brigid herself has been reinvented throughout history, the endless ability of the goddess to maintain her strength in quiet ways, bide her time, and wait for the right moment to be born anew.
All in all, the work does not express much of an emotional range, providing a flat affect that does not touch the soul. It falls quite wide of its proposed mark.
