Disarming, warm and always accessible, Janelle Barker’s poems make ordinary experiences glow. Everything that suffuses her emotive expression is here: love, compassion, insight, lyrical precision and the clear, simple honesty that reveals how life can turn in a moment. Musing on undercurrents and connections between family, nature, memory, motherhood and the world of circumstantial events that have created our culture and our fears. The poems in this aspiring collection begin on the surface and then delve us, gracefully effortlessly, to a far more thought-provoking place. Grounded in experiences and perceptions, with all human mysteries and consolations they resonate with a passionate, sensuous honesty that only a new Indie Author can expressly create.
