little, but by no means small is filled with short poems (including haiku) portraying all sorts of beings and objects, animate and inanimate in nature. Each verse, though small in size, speaks volumes, and that, often done with humor and irony. The poems address the foibles, realities & conundrums of the living and dying -- and Mother Nature -- her great trees, flowers, sand, sea and sky. Her quirky creatures, including butterflies, gulls, a snake, dog, big cats, and more...all here, captured in miniature, shown in a whole  new light. Poems easily accessible to the reader.

Review:

Ruth Sabath Rosentha offers no sentimental or nostalgic gestures, but rather tough-minded encounters with the subtle cruelties, the blind-spots, and the betrayals that all who have marked time within families will recognize. Though disappointment and loss are inherent in her terrain, any collection, in which the cassette tape of a last phone message is preserved in a "velvet-lined box," speaks to tenderness as a counterweight to mortality. It's that ability to balance -- on taut lines, juggling awry (and often pun-loving) wit with moral courage -- that makes Ruth's poems triumphs of form and candor.

In Ruth's poems, life is often a riddle or at least a source of puzzlement and paradox. Ruth's keen perceptions help us better comprehend ourselves. We come to see life in a different light -- enlightenment -- that allows us to find and face our own home and go beyond.  
Dr. David B. Axelrod --Laureate & Fulbright Poet and Author

           


 
 

It's with passion and humor that Ruth Sabath Rosenthal dives into the complexities of family life. Forthright and fearless, vulnerable and tender, her poems illuminate emotional moments between human beings. There's purity of purpose and daring. Rosenthal's boldness, insight and lived earned wisdom embrace her readers with each line.  Molly Peacock -- Poet,Multidisciplined Author, Dramatist  


Ruth Sabath Rosenthal gives us well crafted poems that focus on the family in heightened stages oflife. The poems are emotionally charged and complex, witty and sometimes dark. Ruth vividly presents the human experience with sensibility and humor. 
Pati Tana -- Poet and Author

Ruth poems are bursting with life, teeming with vibrant portraits of grandparent, mother, father, sister, husband, red-clad women -- and more. Poems skillfully focus on birth, sex, marriage, aging, death, while others, often donewith rich humor, center on food and animals (including parrot and porcupine) dreams; and a few reference beloved poets --Whitman and Yeats included.  Here is poetry that throbs with vividly presented human experience. 
Robert K. Johnson -- Author, Poet, Former Editor of Ibbetson Street Press
