In her second full-length poetry collection, Carolyn Miller visits light in each season of nature and of life, revealing shifting states of joy and grief, aging and beauty. Her unpresumptuous voice is as richly textured as the landscape she invokes, a remarkable landscape of the remembered and the present that she rediscovers in the gardens of San Francisco, the woods of Missouri, in each place she visits as she travels farther from home and from childhood. From the holiness of dishwater and the worship of dirt, through storms in the world and the body, from the irreversible parting of Persephone from her mother to the repair of the spirit in the suddenness of a downpour or the landing of a plane, Miller gives us "Each moment palpable as a berry, life and death joined at the core, the flower against the bone".

Light, Moving is an elegant celebration of close attentiveness from a poet ever engaged in and humbled by living. Carolyn Miller's poems are sensual, care-filled, and shining, waking us continuously to the wealth of the world as it is. --Forrest Hamer
Review 2 Carolyn Miller is a poet of the world as it is, but when she looks outward she sees marvels: dark lamb's blood of dogwood, for instance. Or, in a lovely trope, seeing carrots from below, underground, bright . . . torches. Or primroses cheerful as crayons. The world— shot through with delights, shadowed by death, freighted with its vicissitudes— undergoes transformations through the poet's language and perception. The result is a resolute, unqualified joy in being. — Frank X. Gaspar
