Poetry. "Terry Ehret contructs poems that are fearless...No matter how dark her themes, she manages to circle back...to reclaim new and widening patterns of light, as dark hair, antlers, corollas of oaks spring from her canvas. It is how she listens to her subjects and finds their form that ultimately stuns the readers. Like Joaquin Miller in "The Heights," she grips the world so hard she hold it in place for a few moments -- and makes it shine" Fran Ringold, Editor of Nimrod. Terry Ehret's LOST BODY is also available from SPD.
