Because you can't walk this path
with me today, I walk it
This elegiac, sequence of poems draws on Asian forms to create a deeply moving meditative verse. Cheryl Anne Latuner’s perceptions are acutely attuned to the natural world, allowing insight to arise from the page like the flight of geese. Soon They Will Fly not only flies, it sings, and evokes resonances far beyond the reaches of Fitzgerald Lake.
~Mary Swander, Poet Laureate of Iowa
author of The Girls on the Roof
These poems perform an act of communion as they mingle memories of the poet’s mother with moments from a lake the poet loves to visit. A meditative process takes hold here: actuality speaks and the poet listens. Genuine delicacy informs the poet’s insight into what has been lost and what remains. Cheryl Anne Latuner is wonderfully alert to the inclusiveness and transparency of the natural world, how it speaks for and to spirit.
~Baron Wormser, author of The Road Washes Out in Spring.
