The natural images that recur in the poems here reflect not only a world of birds and beasts, but the nature of the human heart.

A member of Cool Women, a poetry performance ensemble, Juditha Dowd is the author of three chapbooks. Her poetry has appeared in The Florida Review, Cider Press Review, Kestrel, Spillway and elsewhere and has been featured by Poetry Daily.Review:
These luminous, beautifully crafted poems leap from one stunning detail to another, facing hard truths and recounting haunting narratives of an ailing mother, a learning-disabled daughter, and a strong marriage. She celebrates a perfect mango found in a backstreet shop, yet in the same poem reminds us that our lives have been flayed open, a claim this book fearlessly demonstrates. --Barbara Daniels, author of Rose Fever, Black Sails and Quinn and Marie.
Nature is abundantly available in Juditha Dowd's striking poems, but it is available-and it is a source of such delight in these poems-only because of the illustrious mind and sensibility with which Dowd frames her birds and beasts, her people of the hearth and the field, and the hearth and the field themselves. These are strong, assured fragments of reality that are as alive as the creatures they meditate upon. --Vijay Seshadri, author of Wild Kingdom, The Long Meadow, and The Disappearances
