Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Celestine Frost

“This is feisty, apt writing with an appetite one very much respects. No world is ever there unless it’s come into. Here’s a way in!” — Robert Creeley

“Celestine Frost’s poems have the delicate touch that the surest poets command. Here is music that can devise with fire and grace.” — Ed Foster, editor, Talisman

“A brilliant song, a celebration of life connecting us to the universe. Frost experiments with language and form, creating a unique rhythm and vision—playful, profound.” — Marcia Arrieta, editor, Indefinite Space
