Viewing the contemporary world through the lens of biblical psalms, the natural world, medieval history, and spiritual dimensions of lightness and darkness, these poems travel to cities in southern Spain, to rural New England, and to Achill Island off the Irish coast. Vibrant and lyrical, these meditations deal with life, the human body, and the self.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jennifer Barber's poems are small, deft psalms, large in spiritual scope. She celebrates elementals: water and salt, darkness and light, silence and utterance, in an art of delicacy, quiet, and precision." --Rosanna Warren, author, "Ghost in a Red Hat "
"Jennifer Barber's perceptions are so specific and surprising in these beautiful and rigorous poems, her diction and music so pure, her rhetoric so without excess or self-congratulations that her discipline as an artist seems supernatural. Stunning verbal artifacts, human in scale, are made vast, spiritualized by their implications." --Vijay Seshadri, author, "The Long Meadow"
"The speaker of these poems exists in a state of longing that resembles prayer. She announces that this is 'the first day of the world' and we know we are in divine presence." --Pam Bernard, author, "The Blood Garden"
