really liked it

maybe as high as 4 1/2 stars. perfect for spring. or fall. any time when it's a season, really.... lol. so graceful in her movements, and the rhetorical construction of each piece is like grecian pillars--classic, elegant, stirring. It reads easily, but often hits such depths that the resonances have to sit for a few seconds, minutes, days, years... who's counting. has something slightly unconventional. i love the repetition, especially of the matins. an elegiac poet in the voice of flowers. it sounds like the opposite of the road less traveled, which makes its freshness all the more surprising. one of my favs that i keep returning to.
