Overview


For years Jan Seale’s carefully crafted poetry has captivated audiences with its wit, sharp diction, and seamlessness. This eighth volume of the Texas Poets Laureate series discovers the eternal in the transient—coupling the mythological with the present, the spiritual with the sensual, the joyful with the sorrowful. This riveting collection of work, both new and old, celebrates her broad achievements as a poet. Designated the 2012 Texas Poet Laureate, Seale reveres poetry as “the most elegant and most historic of our verbal arts.”

Seale’s lifelong love of poetry (she began writing at the age of six) is apparent in this volume.  Her work has been described as whittled and sharp, witty and serious. Her precise diction and visual imagery probe themes that range from spiritual faith to women, family, aging, and nature itself. This collection of work is a testament to Seale’s skill, craft, and dedication to the art of poetry.
