Description

Like the shifting and often turbulent skies of our own emotional meteorology, Rhonda Batchelor’s poems forecast the shifting patterns of a marriage from quiet moments of a graceful dawn to stormy seas of absence, from brilliant love-strewn sunshowers to dark moments of loss and bitter nights upon the shore. In three sections, "Backbone of the Moon", "Ghostly Dialogues" and "Still Breathing", Batchelor explores the fleeting forever trilogy of expectations, unions and releases that comprise the tidelike phases of a lover’s cycle. Dedicated to respected Canadian poet Charles Lillard, Batchelor’s late husband, this work keens to the notes of a personal lament but emerges triumphantly healed and ultimately blessed.
