Poetry. STONE SIGHTINGS, by Madeline Sonik, is a compilation of poetry that seeks to unearth a personal experience of the archetypal feminine and the way she manifests in a woman at mid-life. There are ancient patterns we can identify and traverse: loss, love, alienation; but ultimately, the significance of these and their ability to transform us comes about only through finding the way their meaning manifests in our own lives.
