A Small Wave for Your Form
These are beautiful and assured poems, drawn from the core of life, from love and birth. Here the poet weaves together the roles of mother and daughter, observer and participant. Landscape, memory and the abiding presence of spiritual reality within experience give this collection a tenderly profound and authentic resonance.
Picture me on a beach with our children;
your children in newly liberated skins,
ready to play with you. Darling,
while you were away,
we have run wild.
We've learnt to sculpt you out of sand.
Hold still -- we are working on a way
to breathe the bones into you.
