Dusting the Glass based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This collection of poems is one of the best I've ever read. The imagary that the author uses is very beautiful and in some poems you feel like you are there with her. Beautifully written
Dusting the Glass by Nancy Kaye Dobson The forty-eight poems in Dusting the Glass will engage you with compelling stories and rich imagery. Reading these poems puts you directly in the presence of a skilled storyteller who uses words and phrases with great effect. The selections offer variety and depth. Again, these poems are individual stories told in a compelling manner. This storyteller is nearby throughout each poem; pulling you into the storylines. The prose is both connected and alive with imagery and energy. The book is divided into seven sections entitled: Ink, Breath, Blood, Window, Flame, Rain, and Mirror. The first poem, "Inheritance," foreshadows coming experiences which will surround you with memories, hopes, dreams, thoughts and ideas needing to breathe and be unfurled. It is helpful to pause after each selection to both reflect on what you have experienced and reset your emotions. If poetry allows readers to escape into new experiences and worlds, Dusting the Glass achieves this and more. Each poem has its own clear identity and story to tell, enabling you to vividly recall them later. Your reading will uncover many treasures as old memories are rekindled and past dreams awakened.
