Lynda Lambert covers a wide terrain of subjects and topics in this new book, from lights to legends to seasons, treating us to images and metaphors about plants, people and weather. She opens this large collection with the title poem, Star Signs, which walks us through the alphabet as it digs through thoughts, emotions and observations, “Using star signs to map out new terrain.”
Throughout this book of poems, these gems of poetic creation shimmer like beads on her fabric art, like bold brush strokes of color on her paintings, and reflect light like the gemstones on her prize–winning piece of mixed–media fiber artwork. It seems this entire collection is like a multifaceted mural.
Her attentiveness to nature and strong reflections from memory have woven from a collage of remnants a beautiful tapestry for us. It offers a wonderful feast for the eyes and the mind.
—Wesley D. Sims, author of Taste of Change
Painting in Mid–October
Autumn’s morning light revealed changes Undermined the scarlet–red palette Taking center stage on the painting Undulating rain cast gray–violet hues Misty diffusion brought a new perspective Not anticipated yesterday Aroused the softened brushstrokes Layered over the primed canvas. Dying is a careful arrangement A graceful staged performance Yellow leaves are faithful dancers Spectacular choreography!
