Kathleen Galvin Grimaldi's new volume of poetry asks us to "Trust in the nothingness, but remain seated at life's table." This is a fitting invitation to a collection that asks the big questions and resolves time and again into moments of clarity, acceptance, comfort and inspiration. Every poem is a gem, written by a poet at the top of her game-- a tried and true woman who trusts in the "music of a deeper dream" to inform these meditations on love, loss, time passing and the temple of the natural world. Master of form, master at life, this is a poet at home with herself, attuned to the precision and beauty of language, with lots to say about how to be human in our lovely and troubled world.
