Water Witching in the Garden
|Author: ||Biffar, Donna|
These poems form a triad of the wonders and savagery of family connections and, therefore, of human existence. These are poems of everyday Midwestern farm images and the mysteries that can be found in sunflowers opening to the sun.
"Water Witching in the Garden is what poetry should be. There is no waste, no slippage, no false starts, no dead ends; no spontaneity running off to nowhere. These poems are crafted but not labored. Each poem is a solid-on-the-ground monument to what is, not an over-adjective gauze that floats away to nothing. These poems don’t tell. They are the pines, the soil, the seeds; the mother, the daughter, the love, these poems are." reader review by Don Ammons on Amazon
