    I dislike using the word “accessible.” There have been times when I’ve wondered if that is code for a lack of intricacy or profundity. The work here is comprehensible but still complex. The poems move from nostalgia to appreciation, from the beauty of nature to the frailties of humanity, from sorrow to hope. From Craig Morris’ Introduction, which sets the mood, to Joe Hesch’s theme poem Petrichor, which closes the book, it’s a joy. Well organized with the weather metaphor as the through line, the sections are The Drought, Gathering Storm, and The Rain. It’s hallmark is perhaps the show of humanity at its best …. . This morning I will cast open the curtains, chasing the fear away and hold this crystal up to the sunlight, releasing my soul to fly - Prism, Abigal Baker …. and at its worst Haunted by proper thoughts of his wife at home he wryly recollects how he told her before friends and family on their silver anniversary “I love every wrinkle, every scar I celebrate, such wonderous... More > depths are etched upon your body a cartography of our marriage I love the silver in the gold of our hair” then renewed his marriage vows his fingers crossed, avoiding his own reflection in the mirror - Cracks of Angst: A Portrait of an Unhappy Man, Marsha Berry Both my thumbs up on this one. There’s still time to order it for the holidays and profits go to UNICEF, making it a definite win-win.< Less
