We wander through history and back through these well-crafted poems that weave mythology, history, art, and the natural world with a dream world that leaves us wanting to read these poems again and again. This is a profound and powerful second collection of poetry by Carolyn Gelland. –Jonathan K. Rice
The poetry and the passion, the world around us in our shared vigor and transience, is embodied in Carolyn Gelland’s poems. –Henry Braun
