About this title


Poetry. Here are poems of remembrance and deep grieving, recalling in etched details iconic moments which are alive with the unspoken-moments between father and daughter, mother and child, sister and sister, lover and lover, poet and friend. "These thrillingly beautiful poems invoke what the thinnest scrap of moon can offer of its cold glowing remnant to the imagination: loss, sorrow, and hope. The hyphen, prominent in Benning's language use, makes impressive the connection, and the distance, between words and the living cosmos. Benning's fresh romanticism colours the lexicon of THIN MOON PSALM and its emotional territory. The prairie landscape and sky-world, the temporality of passionate human connection; the physicality of memory and grief are the deep streams of metaphor this book engages. Sheri Benning is a marvel of a poet"--Sharon Thesen.
