9781625641793: Scape: Poems (Poiema Poetry) (The Poiema Poetry Series)

Luci Shaw's poetry is already widely known and celebrated. Scape, her 2013 collection of new poetry, explores metaphors of spiritual significance, paying attention to the small and seemingly irrelevant events of living and listening to nature. Wise, thoughtful, and probing, her sensuous lyrics find fresh connections and relationships between God and his created universe.

About the Author:

Luci Shaw is a widely known and published writer, essayist, and lecturer on art and faith. Born in the UK in 1928, she has lived in Australia and Canada and now makes her home in Bellingham, Washington, with her husband, John Hoyte. Since 1989 she has been writer in residence at Regent College, Vancouver. She is winner of the tenth annual Denise Levertov award for "sustained engagement in creative writing in the Judeo-Christian tradition"

Review:

More than a book, Scape is a sacred offering, a scape we can hold that directs our gaze and supports us, in the long, shivering road up, up. --Suzanne Paola, author, The Lives of the Saints

Luci Shaw notes in one of her new poems that, 'without the impediment / of gravity the dancer / cannot dance.' And it's just that wise understanding of the weights and balances of life that her poems get so right. . . . Such abstractions live in the particulars of an egg's brownness, a snail's glistening trail, a sparrow's 'economical and precise' pecking, and the taut feel of a trout on the line. Luci Shaw's poems incarnate the 'slow pleasure of being. --Robert Cording, author, Common Life

Luci's most witty, brilliant book. . . . One after another, these poems ground the reader utterly in the concrete and physical--and then, with the jet engine of metaphor, they take off into the world of spirit. --Jeanne Murray Walker, University of Delaware
