Moon Full of Moons: Poetry of Transformation (英语) 平装 – 2015年2月18日
A journey into darkness and back to the light. The Moon makes it look so easy. In Moon Full of Moons, Kat Lehmann skillfully paints a journey from happiness lost to happiness found. This beautifully organized collection of poems is sequenced with the Moon's phases, which provide a touchstone for personal transformation. Musical, honest, and accessible, these poems create an inspirational and powerful body of work. The delicate, rich imagery transports the reader from enchanting and whimsical songs of childhood innocence through a struggle in the darkness to the powerful decision to shift the balance toward a new happiness. In these pages, she carries the reader through the wonder of beauty and language, an imaginative sailing on the Crescent Moon, and the subtle internal changes that lead to overcoming obstacles and emotional survival. Kat Lehmann demonstrates a mastery of patient observation and an openness to the teachings of nature - both internal and external - that are contained in the smallest of moments. The highly personal is described in terms of the universal. The result is tender, uplifting, insightful, and challenging. It is self-help expressed as poetry, with an impassioned call to embrace the meditative, find acceptance, and live.
Moon Full of Moons by Kat Lehmann holds echoes of the confessional poetry of Plath or Sexton and a lot of the magic of cummings. She writes breathless love poems to her children and the moon, rivers and trees. The cycle of moon phases is a recurrent theme, almost to the point of being a narrative but this is poetry and you are welcomed into, rather than pulled along by, a growing knowledge of what she's up to here.
She's unfolding a path to recovery from loss of her beloved mother. She's reveling in every moment of discovery her children make in their path to adulthood and independence. She's creating something as beautiful and perfect as anything Plath or even Yeats might have given us.
