Small Measures is an intense and vivid collection of poems one keeps going back to. It is filled with a startling and exquisite use of language. This inventive and haunting collection explores human loss and loneliness in the not-always-safe shelter of the natural world. Not only is this stark and refreshing poetry accessible, but the imagery is thought-provoking, inviting the reader into a deeper relationship with each poem to embrace a renewing journey speaking to them on so many levels.
