Commended, IP Picks 2006, Best Poetry. Rosemary s Huisman s first collection of poetry is an eclectic mix of the real world and typifies Rosemary s talent for paying attention to her surroundings and using it as an inspiration for her poetry. The poems in this collection touch on natural, social and political surroundings, as well as being particularly aware of language used by other people. These things combined make for an enjoyable and interesting read. For poetry readers and non-poetry readers alike, The Possibility of Winds has a wide variety of subjects that would appeal to anyone from the age of 14 and up. A great collection that is essential for representing Australian poetry in libraries and schools.

This is a world wonderfully changed by Rosemary Huisman s fine observation, playful intelligence and true feeling. Her poetry gives us what we need: it helps us recognise ourselves even as it constantly surprises us. A pleasure to read and read again. --Noel Rowe
I felt a great admiration for how much of the world is lucidly present in Huisman s poetry. Places, characters and remembrances are all made vital and rich in these clear, shapely poems. Her clean approaches and her incisive, guiding voice make her a poet of power and authority. The delicacy and poise of her language is a delight, and her range of interests makes this a dynamic collection. Huisman s poems leap with life. --Judith Beveridge
