What People are Saying About This

Ron Wallace

"Sorceress of language, alchemist of the heart, singer of the inner life of things, Kathleen Halme celebrates with wit, humor, and an abiding sense of wonder, 'the three-pound storm / that is my brain and me.' If 'what will suffice is pleasure,' these beautiful poems, 'silly with light,' will, in their dazzle and amplitude, more than suffice. Drift and Pulse is a book of marvels, a marvel of a book."

Lawrence Joseph

"What suffices in Kathleen Halme's Drift and Pulse is the drift of language into its innermost forms, the pulse of language made different by light. What suffices is beauty and balance, life's profoundest realities profoundly felt, infolded into pure language."
