Russell Bourne’s poems will move readers into the spaces of their own hearts as they share the poet’s journeys to places he loves. Whether the speaker of a poem is alone or in the company of a beloved, the poems generously share their details, creating intimacy, as well as awareness of how precious and fleeting all of life is. These poems have the weight of stillness, the gravity of contemplation, and the freedom of the senses that give them wings. Bourne is a poet to read slowly and savor. And then to read again.
