In this debut collection
Ruth Goring offers poems of winsome accessibility and adventurous, hopeful musing coupled with delightful and sensual design. She opens a door into undiscovered countries: urgent rivers, wordless giants, soul-stirring music, fathers never known, voices that beckon and fade. Here are sorrow and sweetness, heartbreak and hope. The mundane is here, and also the numinous. At times they switch places. And in the strangeness of these landscapes the familiar is revisioned.
Ruth Goring is a poet, activist, editor and artist. Her poems have appeared in Target Earth, White Pelican Review, ProCreation, Mars Hill Review, Prairie Light Review and other journals. Her “Adagio penitento” won the 2000 poetry prize from ProCreation.
