Bright Scarves of Hours is a poetry collection that explores common domestic landscapes — car-pooling with children, walking the dog, vacation snapshots and recipees. These elements weave into one woman’s vibrant inner life, transforming the mundane into a tapestry shimmering with insight and lyricism.
From an elegiac yellow morning to the dark dreams of exhausted sleep, these poems assert that no hour is an ordinary hour, and that there is no such thing, really, as an ‘ordinary’ life. Wrought with the burdens and triumphs of familiar love, the language seeks to connect us while celebrating the sometimes contrary desires and hidden grace found in the everyday.
