From The Back Cover: Inspired by the Sonoran Desert and the author's experiences, this poetry collection was put together over the course of a year and some months. Eclectic and often rhymed with slant rhyme, it contains 101 poems. There are villanelles, sonnets, rondeaux, triolets and haiku as well as much free verse poetry. This anthology will delight your heart. 


GRASS is a taut crew;
They stand at attention
As soldiers do
With orders from the sun –

Never having thoughts
That their purpose is trite
Or any doubts.
Each is a cosmopolite

Of their colonnade.
How exemplary –
I whispered to one blade –
To live as thee.

Professional Reviews

Full of heart
The book contains about 60 pages of poetry (short for the price, but the quality makes up for it). Favorite themes include love and attraction, friendship, and the beauty of the night sky and of nature. The poems are mostly rhyming, and only occasionally metered; and the book is full of half-rhyme, which results in some very interesting effects. For instance, many of the poems require careful study to see if they are even rhyming at all!

The result, if you simply read through smoothly, is that the words sit in your consciousness like musical notes on a score, occasionally reinforcing each other, occasionally not, but all working together with a sort of mystical quality.

The poetry is heavily inspired by Emily Dickinson, as the author confesses on her website. But it's not derivative. Some authors give their favorites genuine love, and share parts of themselves with the authors they admire. The result is something that can stand on its own two feet while having the blood of the teacher flowing through its veins. Although there aren't many poems in this book whose subjects have never been chosen before, the depth of feeling and of honesty with which they're written means that no one, no matter how many poems they've read, will find the experience not worthwhile. Hearts are new every time they get written about.

This book is technically adept, and full of a wonderful kindness, patience, and wonder. I recommend it to anyone who can read a poem.

Author has perception and vision that is pure and clear as a bell. She invites us into her world where we can share in the revelation of common things with her. Well done.
