I arrived home from a week on the road to find this book of original poetry waiting for me. I opened the box and sat down and read it straight through. Wow! I'm blown away and find myself at a loss for words. But as I gather my thoughts I am compelled to share them.

This little book belies the raw courage and passion that beats unabashedly within it's pages. Although Megan has organized her work by the elements earth, air, fire and water, the reader cannot help but be swept along in a journey of emotional torment only to be lovingly rescued by a gentle knowing hand...over and over again.

This is poetry from the heart and soul of someone that ponders the very aesthesis of human experience and boldly paints it for the rest of us. It beats and screams at the edge of a raging storm only to surrender completely to the mystery of the newly born. And then safely cradle's the reader as they recover in serene gratification.

The photography is not only beautiful, it skillfully dances with it's poetic companion. Susan Sontag would refer to these photos as "slices of time's relentless melt". So true!

This was not just a good read - it was a truly remarkable experience. I highly recommend this book of poems.
Thank you, Megan, for sharing them.
