Soft Landings in Poetry 2 by Mel Senator

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This lovely book takes a reader to the most familiar and comforting of places -- seashore, countryside, bike path -- but each time there is something new. We stand on the beach and notice the mysterious patterns of birds overhead, the casual but poignant spread of beach toys, tangled seaweed, and we see them differently. Senator paints for us the moments of life that repeat endlessly but that we experience uniquely each time, whether in the simple bliss found in a respite from cold weather, or the complexity and mystery of a friend's mind, or even momentous self-discovery reached during an argument. In this book we find moments of humble reflection on relationships, the hope and wistfulness and even despair that give us the rhythms and colors of our days -- a collection that is profound and simple all at once.
