Barbara Blatner | 2 comments but a place in which we become again
the original animal we were born to be.
--Cynthia Huntington

The above lines are from a poem from RADIANT. This is what I love about her work, her insistence on her body, on being a body among other bodies, among the trees and sand and water....she is rooted and not rooted at the same time to the earth. We need this kind of stuff now, earth stuff.

Ed (evd1) Cynthia did not win the award. It was given to 89 year old David Ferry, another excellent poet. Nevertheless I encourage all of you to read Cynthia's excellent unique uncompromising poetry. The evening was a thrilling memorable event and I was honored to be her guest. The nominated book Heavenly Bodies is available here. http://www.amazon.com/Heavenly-Bodies...
