"These are meditative poems that seem to rise from a long and deep looking at life, in its most ordinary and familiar moments. They invite us into the gaze, suggesting how the surfaces of things might reveal stronger truths for those who know to wait and wonder. These pages call us to consider our lives as 'lent by the mystery and borrowed back, ' as the poet puts it, showing us what yearning might require--and yield." --Mark S. Burrows, Editor for Paraclete Poetry
