Bent upon Light

Bent upon Light illuminates the gap between human reach and human grasp. It is no easy matter to look toward emptiness and reveal its contents. Yet Marjorie Stelmach’s poems cast light from that gap through a spiritual prism refracting and reflecting the ways our words so often fail to fit our world, the ways our dreams suggest landscapes we can’t discover in our waking lives, the ways we convert both nature and art into emblems, omens, or provisional visions that fill us with brief joy before we reach again.
