In a Hare’s Eye
ISBN: 978-1-907682-36-0 | Pages: 80 | Published: 2015
Here are poems of wonder, imagination, grief, bewilderment and delight. Drawing on an awareness formed during a rural childhood, they record the natural world and the way we, as humans, live in it, leaving the marks of our passing on the landscape and on our personal stories and mythologies. While exploring our responsibilities to each other and to the earth, these poems cross and re-cross the permeable borders between Christian tradition and a post-Christian world, and between the real and the unconscious. These are lyrical poems that demonstrate a rigorous aesthetic and explore themes of memory, the natural world, a sense of place, the dreamscape and what it means to be a spiritual person in a post-Christian world.
