Cynthia West says, 'Poems form a path, with places to rest from the grief that rides the shoulders with the claws of a hawk. It takes strong legs to carry the sorrow of all who ask. It takes a clear mind to bear the voices. It takes the balance of a tightrope walker not to trip on the pain. The flowers, upholding petals and seeds, understand the burden a yoke can be. Sensing their transience, they announce,'Poems build the road forward, providing hollows where gladness can grow.'' Known for her visionary paintings, Cynthia is also a poet, photographer, digital imager, potter and book artist. Her home with many gardens, where she has lived for forty years with her husband and family, is a healing center as well as her studio and gallery. Her works are collected worldwide. west is the author of four previous collections of poetry, 'For Beauty Way,' '1000 Stone Buddhas,' 'Rainbringer,' and 'The New Sun,' the last two from Sunstone Press.

  • A Clear Drop, Poems for Today
    Cynthia West
    Cynthia West says, 'As a poet, I travel a different map, one with sand traps and tunnels that lead to clouds mirrored in mountain pools. Writing with pen and paper is my way of heeding the wordless ones who have much to teach us. When morning light sighs in the leaves, green veins gather water beyond ideas of line and form. My hand is a nameless bird, dropping feathers that poi...

  • The New Sun
    Cynthia West
    Cynthia West says, 'Kneeling, I retrieve shattered shards, glue them together. If I can stick even one piece to another, I have a poem. It is bread. . . . To write poetry, I memorize suffering's names, visit the wounds no stitches can hide, gather stories in my pain bag until it bursts. Love aches if it isn't told. . . . My words are small, round circles, elm seeds, designed to...

  • Rainbringer
    Cynthia West
    'My poems are rituals. By ritual I mean precise machines, airplanes, which convey the traveler from one place to another. 'Rainbringer' is a road map for seekers, a trail marker for the emptied ones. Field notes, advice and anecdotes entertain along the way. The lilies I offer you have been gathered climbing the mountains, swimming the sea and bringing the rain.' Well known fo...
