These lyrical poems remind us that the life cycle and our emotional reactions to everyday occurrences bring to the surface love, memories, regret and thoughts of life's ending. An inspiring book."

An excerpt from Path Into the Sun

Wide-eyed, bewildered as a wakened child,

a wombat looks up at the humans

viewing it. We walk the sanctuary

as though we own it, talking loudly

like teenagers let out of school,

but wombats, emus, and kangaroos

are regulars, expansive, calm,

like neighbors at a bar, just tolerating us intruders.
