An atmospheric collection of poems set between earth and sky, nature and mind, and self and other.

The passing wind and the stirring trees, the warm days of sun and cyclical nights of moon, the rolling green hills and the flowing of water, and the spinning, spinning of this pillbox earth amid a vast whole universe—all are symbols both abstract and real, rich with meaning, yet we are admonished to see things as they are:
