The book is separated into four sections; Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Each element contains a collection of poems that reflect the spirit of those elements. My favorites are La Femme, Exposed, and Web of Lives. These three come from the Earth and Fire sections and they are strong and wild like their Elements.
Each of these poems gives the reader the understanding that what we are experiencing is an honest, vulnerable expression of someone's life. Though I can not say whether these are autobiographical, it is easy to believe that there is the truth of experience in each poem.
Ms. Czerwinski has a gift for painting very clear pictures with her words. I found myself stopping during many of these poems just to fully visualize what I was reading. There are many great uses of word pictures and I loved some of the juxtopositions of images that caused me to stop and reflect.
I recommend this collection to anyone who is ready for growth, going through change, or enjoys words as art. This a great set of moments to experience, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
From the Intro: "Your opinion on what the writer is conveying is correct, even if it differs from one person to the next. I love poetry for that reason."
So while your head pictures and emotions may differ from mine, I'm sure Mary's poetry will inspire you.
