An immigrant woman with two children having to turn back, face life, find home. These poems are deep, questioning: they present us with things to reflect on, think about, dream of. 'Dancing in the Street,' charming and sad. A good ending, a hopeful poem. Another poem, 'Synchronicity,' a spot of loveliness, a fig tree leaf and rose bush flower reach out to each other, just as we humans do. The poet is helping us to be open to beauty, amidst despair. Her poems are thoughtful, they will get you wondering about your own canyons, basements, family, strangers on the street, your own wild and interesting life. Many are about San Francisco but include Chicago and other countries. The bluebirds, the snow, soup made out of cherries, a lonely white duck. What do we do with our dreams and impressions? This lovely book will inspire you to discover your own.- Ellen Levin,Writer. Published as part of an anthology How to Begin Poems, Prompts, tips and writing exercises from Fresh Ink Collective, edited by Robin Michel, Raven and Wren Press, San Francisco, CA.

  • Polishing the Silver
    Jennifer Chrystie
    ‘There’s a touch of both Dickinson and Larkin in Jennifer Chrystie’s mature exhumation of the tales and tropes of family. Figures who could so easily flit like phantoms in her well honed poetry are palpably enjoying an after-life in the poet’s ability to redeem through deep understanding. The collection arcs from, at one extreme, the parsimonies of the household, to the transce...

  • One Kiss
    Edward V Bonner
    The very title of Edward V. Bonner's first volume of poetry, One Kiss (Ingram, 2015), suggests some ways in which the poems inside balance the universal with the particular.
