Sheila Packa gets to the heart of things by taking us through layers of words and images that sing our deepest longings, our dearest loves. She allows us to hear the echoes of silence, the river branching into split tongues, the grandfather in his grave playing his violin, to see sky's brilliant stream, sheets snapping in the wind releasing lovers' dreams, to feel the pull of migration, to smell the burnt sugar of apple pie, the catch of sun in sheets snapping in the lilac air. If you want a song book to take you to places that need remembering or exploring, Cloud Birds will sing your heart open.
"Cloud Birds" by Sheila Packa is a beautiful book about memory, myth and magic. She has an elemental voice - steeped in the north woods of Minnesota - water, iron, pine, wind ... & love with all its wild and rough edges.
