“It is rare to discover a work of such exquisite imagery, both in its poems and its photographs. Nothing escapes this poet’s eye: Day is a perfumed meadow with ‘violet starbursts,’ early light as ‘morning prayer,’ even the ‘speak of crickets and worm songs.’ Night reveals ‘stars in the basket of sky’ and the moon transformed into a ‘ewe’s horn.’ One can only dream of becoming lost in Dr. Aronoff’s lush landscape of meditation, healing, and, ultimately, grace.” Andrea L. Watson, Braided Lives: A Collaboration Between Artists & Poets “The real blessing is Aronoff’s synthesis of exquisite photographs with the simple yet meaningful imagery of nature, rain, sky, vegetation, ocean—all the same subjects that make Merwin’s poetry so profound. But I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone who sees certainty in a tide pool, an empty bowl as an open door. Prepare to discover new worlds! This is her best volume yet—stunning!” Scott Wiggerman, author of Vegetables and other Relationships and editor of the Texas Poetry Calendar “Carol Aronoff views the world through a gentle poetic lens that includes all people, all cultures, all beliefs. In her newest book, Blessings from an Unseen World, we find her lens has become literal, visual, photographic. Her photography reminds us that landscape is an integral part of language. We are given entrance to a world of detail: two rocks side-by-side, a dilapidated building folded into itself, a trail of exquisite doors. Aronoff moves from one medium to the other with ease, ‘unveiling what once was hidden,’ allowing her readers to follow both her seen and unseen worlds.” Colette Jonopulos, editor, Tiger’s Eye Press/Altered Crow Press “Blessings from an Unseen World is a memorable conversation between Aronoff’s photographs and poems. In imagery that reaches beyond physical sight, she celebrates the healing powers of the natural world.” Laurie Kutchins, author of The Night Path and Slope of the Child Everlasting
