From the cover poem forward, Meg Files' latest poetry collection weaves together celebrations, trials, images and challenges of her walk and the way she views the world - a view that endears her to poets, readers and students throughout the country. Her relationships with native plants, epiphany, playtime, the heart, her father, dolphins, friends, the desert, her ceiling, reconciliation and writing students find shape and form throughout The Love Hunter. Her gift of taking everyday moments and extricating their most dynamic, organic, heart-touching aspects -good or bad, the poet's pen observing without re-directing the flow of each movement -makes it difficult to read these 42 selections without viewing our own moments more introspectively.
