Book Reviews:

“Terry Michelsen’s debut poetry collection is a wonderful journey through waters both sacred and political.  Blending traditional poetic forms and free verse, her collection guides the reader into a realm where old gods and new worlds collide to create a testament for modern absolution.  Simply put, Michelsen’s poetry is gold.”

“Michelsen apprehends the divine with craft, innovation, and feeling.  An ambitious new work.”

 “Terry Michelsen knows that to write a poem, she must take her gloves off “…because bare hands do a better job” of caressing, nurturing, and digging into the reality of the world  she loves, whether dog, tendril, sunlight, or dreamtime.  She brings a lively wit, as well as a keen attentiveness to every encounter.  Black beans and rice, yes, she will invite you to sit down and share a bowl and a joke.  She also knows about bloodmeal and raven mocker, and she knows how to enter the world of nature, where webs of sunlight are strung through the trees and animal breath rides on the wind.  Her sonnets “from both sides of the rainbow” are in themselves worth the journey into this book.  Light and shadow live here, and she brings her reader closer to both.”
