This little chap is full of wonder and a tension that can only be found when engulfed in the natural world.

Vine River Hermitage by F. Daniel Rzicznek is a beautiful collection of poetry. I have read and reread it several times over the past month. There is an intuitiveness present in these poems that suggests the poet is looking at the natural world through a microscope but then pulls back to put disparate pieces together into a cohesive landscape of images. From the poem, The Gatekeeper;s Lament, one of my favorites:

A rabbit tilts his thin ears
like radar against the summer
and the moonlight. My faith

Lovely book of pastoral lyrics--a cohesive whole, nicely put together with lush imagistic experiences for the reader.
