About the Book

Drawing on astronomy, nature and the body, Raye Hendrickson dazzles the reader with images of stars and flowers, stones and chakras in words that rearrange our way of perceiving the world and make us experience love and what it is to be alive with new eyes. In poems close to the earth and never far from memory of the prairie farm, the minimalist words spin you under to rise again in a dance of life filled with epiphanies. gillian harding-russell
