1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Peter Dick on May 4 2009
Format: Paperback
Ronna Bloom's poetry astounds me. So deeply personal, yet so broadly universal. Each time I revisit a book or poem of hers, the experience is new. There's that old saying, "You can't step into the same river twice", because the river is constantly flowing, so it is never the same water. In reading Ms. Bloom's poetry, the reader becomes the river. You are never in exactly the same place at any two moments in your life, and so you can never step into one of her poems the same way twice. You will reflect the poems off of your ever-flowing self, and the experience will always be new. Like short-wave radio, these poems broadcast on many frequencies, and you will pick up richly different signals depending on where the dial is set on your soul at any given moment. In short, her work has no 'shelf life'. It is eternal, and perpetually rewarding. As for what she sees around and within her in this life, on this planet, to quote The Beatles, "she's not a girl who misses much". Highly recommended!

This may seem like a small book of small, quiet poems. But the poems are deeply resonant. Keep this book in your pocket so you can dip into it frequently. You'll find the poems growing in your heart and mind the way little paper flowers expand in water. Brava Ronna Bloom.

she captures the quiet and releases it
with such a delicate touch
nothing is disturbed yet everything
is heard.

masterful
