“it is this waiting
for the moment the ripples fade,
till the water is sky again,
the sun in two places at once”
“only the rain
and a drowning coffin
and roses, so many white roses”

if water is a metaphor for
longing or pain, and if
there is a difference”
Water to Water is a collection of poems about love and life, darkness and death, light and separation, brim

An amazing collection. This author's poetry is sublime. There's a sense of being walked through each poem- like being transported unto a film set. Perfect! ...more

Poetry and water go together. The rhythmic gush of poetry mimics that of water, as it finds its own level. Water is also all about touch, in all its forms. Scalding hot or pleasantly cool. Trickling and ticking or the pain of waterboarding.

The poet uses all of these qualities well to deliver a syncretic mix of uniformly outstanding verse. The tone is self-assured yet vulnerable. Without a touch of self-consciousness which is the bane of the debutant.

Poetry for reading twice

... at least twice: first to devour it with delight, responding emotionally; then to go back and enjoy it all over again, savouring it more slowly, pondering the deep thoughts. And I expect I’ll return again and again to these fascinating glimpses into the life, surroundings and experiences of one of my favourite poets. Her work is always brilliant, and always deeply engaging.
