"If the storm is that great, why keep her tethered, battering herself to pieces at the dock?/ Let her go./ Watch her float peacefully away/ under a grey and turbulent sky./ A last grand sail into/ whatever lies beyond./ A graceful exit from all things measured and charted./ Beautiful Ketch, I release you." Prescott's stirring images speak of trauma transforming into triumph. When Alzheimer's hits home, Searching for Cecy is a reassuring and heartfelt lifeline. It is a revelation of love, healing and letting go. A sensational work of art.
My favorite of these poems is "Proof."
"She disappears before me, silently slipping into a realm in which I don't figure....."
A must have for anyone living in this nightmare of a disease.
