About the book
“ ‘We are tiny beneath the light’ is a beautiful book – a remarkable collection that is both intimate and transporting.” ~ Paula Morris
We are tiny beneath the light charts the end of a marriage and the tumble of tiny moments that make up a life under stress, including the unexpected discoveries that can still bring joy – watching a child fly a blue kite or weaving words to make sense of sorrow. Heidi’s second collection manages to speak of the beautiful and the ugly in a single breath, and out of enormity creates small parcels of light.
A poem from this collection – ‘Piha Beach, two years on’ – was used as part of U2’s Joshua Tree tour pre-show in Auckland.
