This anthology of poetry by twelve women who meet regularly to discuss their work has been arranged so that the poems travel through different topics and reflect the group’s range of experience. Each writer has a distinctive voice and the mix of emotion, humour and thoughtfulness make the collection a satisfying read:
‘Clouds have a lading limit;
rain must have an end.
On shelves behind me, upright and askew,
books line up to demonstrate Newton’s Law.
This is the art of falling: not to flail
or fight, but to perfect descent.’ from Poise by Pat Corina
Soundswrite has produced a book which lives up to its name. I very much recommend it.
