The Way the Light Enters

Published Date: September 1, 2014

Available in



6 x 9


These poems explore the place where the ordinary meets the extraordinary in the forests, hidden vales, mountains, and secret coves of the West Coast’s Gulf Islands. At the heart of the collection is a meditation on the threshold of the self as the old shell cracks to reveal the luminous nature of all existence: the gold-dusted tongues of trilliums on the forest floor, stars quivering in their silky pods, the shining face of a beloved on a winter afternoon, cedar boughs parting to let through the sun’s long resplendent fingers of light.
