About the book

Anne PowellAnne Powell’s poems reach from the soul-baring Waikanae River all the way across the earth to cascades of stars over cold desert sand. At times focusing on the wealth of wisdom nature imparts upon patient observation, at others on the daily realities of those people who live beyond our familiar trajectories, Anne stays grounded in her ability to see the sacred in a world of both stillness and disturbance.
