Master of spiritually alert yet down-to-earth fiction (magical realism) Elizabeth Cunningham now unveils her unique species of poetry related to Rumi and Rilkedevotional yet psychologically poignant, like dreaming while awake or laughing while crying. Short, highly focused, and superbly balanced poems take us into the psychically charged universe of her novelstributes to the sacredness of the earth and a very incarnate human longing for the divine. Writing from her own richly embodied, passionately feminist perspective with a vision of spiritual health beyond shame, she creates a world with affinities to the work of Robertson Davies, Gabriel Garcia Marquz, and Marion Zimmer Bradley, as well as earlier writers (C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and George McDonald).
