Editorial Reviews

Review

"Pamala Ballingham's work makes a significant contribution to the Great Work of our time--in these poems she listens to the hidden voices of the world and sings them back in intimate and beautiful words that bring us into deeper connection with all of life."
- Lyanda Fern Haupt, author of Mozart's Starling and Crow Planet
 
 "The poems in this collection speak lyrically of spirituality, nature, travel, love, and moments of perception in free verse, prose poems, haiku, and senryu...  Ballingham employs precise, unexpected images that vividly evoke a number of different emotional states...  Often dreamy and occasionally sharp poems whose spirituality draws from numerous outside sources."
 -"Kirkus Reviews"
 
"...This was perhaps one of the best collections of poems I have ever read...  Rich with powerful and poignant metaphor... uplifting in a gentle and contemplative way... I would not hesitate to recommend this work to long-time readers of poetry, or to beginners.  I feel personally enriched by the experience..."
- "OnlineBookClub.org"   4 out of 4 stars
 
"Pamala Ballingham has a unique quality that allows her to join heart and mind in a way we can all resonate with.  For her, mind becomes a vehicle for the heart to sing its songs in a language that penetrates to the very core of the listener.  Her poems are genuine heart-to-heart communication, imbued with a deep spirituality that brings us face to face with the great mystery of Being.  I find myself savoring them, digesting them, then going back for another serving!"
- Upasaka Culadasa (John Yates, Ph.D.), author of The Mind Illuminated                                   
 "A lifetime of involvement with Native practices and Buddhist meditation has prepared Pamala uniquely for this calling.  Can you hear it?  The silence of the Sonoran desert speaks directly through her."
- Shinzen Young, author of The Science of Enlightenment: How Meditation Works

From the Back Cover

Small bird fledges,
winging through the blue-green flesh of spring,
she not a song
but a singing,
the season not a spring
but a springing...                                                                                                                         
There is power in small things. The smallest birds earn the power of flight; acorns become colossal trees; tributaries trickle into mighty rivers and vast oceans.                      
Tributaries: A Book of Poetry harnesses the power of words to reveal deep meaning in complex matters of life and death. Inspired by the wonders of nature, author Pamala Ballingham contemplates the glow of love, the ache of grief, and the beauty of  wildernesses all around us.                                                                                                              
Life is confounding in a lot of ways. However, you may feel more at peace if you  give yourself  opportunities to connect with the natural rhythms surrounding you. These poems--these little words--offer a powerful glimpse into the otherwise inaccessible mystery of the human spirit.
