Carol Frost has this uncanny ability to make the incidental events of nature both beautiful and momentous to people's lives. I say uncanny because her connections never feel forced.

The ibises rising en masse just as someone points them out for the speaker.

Carol Frost's poetry has a seductive rhythm along with beautiful imagery. I found myself often lost (in a good way) within each poem as they lulled me into a sense of being in each moment she chose to write about. One drawback for me was the lack of consistent jumps that would have mixed each poem up a bit, making them a bit more surprising at times. Otherwise, recommended.
