  1. What I love about your work is that history and mystery, poetry and love, speaker and Beloved all wind a wound which sings gorgeously. We are filled with particulars (the sun casting the speaker’s shadow) and everywhere at once. Is there really only one poem, a love song to the world? I often think so. Thanks for sharing riches.

  2. Both of these are so powerful and alive with rich descriptions that really transport the reader, but I especially love In the Hands of the Wind for all that it says and implies about the passage of time.

  3. Two wonderful poems! I love the first especially, the imagery is amazing. Especially “I hold the hands of the wind”, and “the language for welcome and departure are the same.” In the second, I note the tone of longing to belong to the city, and especially like “I talk to you on rooftops, the words translated by a curious moon.” Congrats on publication.
