Description

Salt Fires is a volume of poems that embrace and reflect our human consciousness: our awareness, our blindness, our Shadow, our mythologies. They invite us to look at ourselves in ways that often are disconcerting, sometimes startling. Love of land infuses Salt Fires. Intimately inhabited and passionately shared, Nova Scotia's farms, woods, and shores reveal themselves to be our Earth in microcosm.

A suite of Sable Island poems closes the book and affirms this notion—Sable Island, a strip of sand in a vast ocean, impossible, yet somehow here, like our planet, rich in life and beauty. This is the work of a mature poet who examines moral blindness and human frailties by inhabiting the experiences of the poems' speakers with vulnerability and honesty. Accessible, clear, and alive with music, the poems inform and incite.

"This is a stunning collection, Salt Fires the perfect title. Our connection to the earth is present, and palpable, without ever becoming a message: we learn by love." —E. Alex Pierce, author of Vox Humana
