about this item

These poems search for truths found amid solitude, nature, and death, and delight in the joy of love within the complexity of diverse relationships. Lundy accepts the weight and the richness of memory, drawing lyric portraits of intriguing people who have touched his life. Of his aboriginal mother he writes, "She exists for me the way the owl perches on black spruce backlit by streetlight grey against the night sky Just before taking flight." His words send a shiver up the spine with their edgy intimacy, as he speaks of the power of understanding and reconciliation. Lundy's "honour songs" celebrate the beauty, wisdom and power of the earth and sky and their creatures: all things that existed long before humankind. In this exciting new collection, his most contemplative to date, he finds a sense of peace and belonging.
