Living Lines Are Never Straight
‘These are poems of very thoughtful observation. Glimpses of the natural world, they are also more than that because, together and variously, they raise issues of interrelationship and belonging. Barbara Orlowska-Westwood exhibits a fine delicacy of touch, placing specific moments and images within the larger context of their value and meaning across time, the longer view as it were, with its continuing measure of significance. There is much to admire in this poetry of trim lines and short stanzas’ Brian Edwards.
