This is a collection of poems woven together with the threads of belonging that bind us to one another and to our memories of the past. It is true that poetry does something that no other kind of writing can do. E.E. Cummings wrote that, “Poetry is the algebra of the heart.” For many of us, poems answer questions and solve mysteries in a distinct way. Kathy’s poems are no different; they reveal a soulful journey, a mapping out of her childhood and her life that many can surely relate to. She explores the concept of time and history and unearths the power that those who have come before us have on our lives. She draws on nature’s beauty and the simplicity of landscape and season to frame the images she offers to her reader.
