This first book of poems by an author whose work has appeared in a variety of journals and literary magazines is imbued with a stillness that is persistent in its significance. In this carefully crafted world a branch, an eggsac, a voice carried across a mown field, encompass all the longing, loss and connection inextricable from the human experience. Each piece is infused with language and images powerful in their lucidity and stunning in their simplicity. With an unrelentingly clear and distinctive voice, Rick Alley delivers keen observations about the world and the individuals in it, which arrive to the reader like a series of unfolding gifts.
