About this product
- DescriptionThis is a collection of poems in five parts, seen through the lens of history, geography, familial loss and celebration. Whether travelling by icebreaker, kayak or on foot, or weaving memory into new landscapes of the heart, these poems incline to the marvellous and metaphysical. Each asks in different ways the question: Where is home? Re-inventing a father though his own World War One journal, in the group Paper Wings , makes a home in the experience of loss, after illness. Learning Walking takes us to a world without walls in the Canadian Arctic where new identity comes through surprise. Cutting Trails puts down roots in the soil of affection and fear, while The Eye's Imprint journeys through decades, exploring the relationships of loss, adventure and risk. What begins as a game of lost and found with God, in Silent Retreat, yields gradually to a threshold of the already and t yet . The collection comes to the conclusion that home is found within our selves and without, anywhere, anytime.
