Other poems speak to a Beloved and the highs and lows of parenthood and personhood-all with music and verve, with formal dexterity, with sadness and humor, with an intimate voice that can both whisper in our ears and grab us by the collar and implore us to listen.

Michael's poetry is patience, with the constant ebb and flow of life. The lines are never rushed and never too slow. He has discovered how to construct calm and reflecting lines that pull the reader in and enclose her/him in its embrace. He has mastered the ability to concretely describe the abstract, and you feel these concepts of loneliness, memory happiness in your soul while reading. My personal favorites: "the thicket", "beach traffic", "re-entry", "study" and "interim". Michael creates a world and invites you in. Michael White is a true poet who writes musically about memory and life. I highly recommend this collection to anyone interested in good poetry.

This is Mr. White's best work to date, and I bought his other two books, Palma Cathedral & The Island too. With each new book of poems, Mr. White gets better and better. That does not mean those at a rudimentary reading level will easily understand his work. These poems take some careful thought and reflection to fully appreciate. They make me work a little, and in return I get rewarded with a deeply personal experience and broader understanding of the human condition. But then again, that is what the best poetry does for me. Maybe the reviewer "Moffra" should stick to works by children's authors. This book must have been above the reviewers reading level. I can think of no other reason why anyone would slam a book as "tainted" without apparently bothering to read it first.

I feel as if I am struggling to reach the end of the poem and find the point which in my opinion the point being all about his ego. I also feel the journey through the work is akin to a retro experience I had back in the 70's while in my hippie days Creative Writing class...
