Rarely do I speak or write on poetry; to me it's like trying to talk about or critique Monk piano intervals; not impossible or improbable, just airy and earth trying to find the right engagement ring; so... I am something like (for lack of a better word) proud... to contradict myself here.

In one sense it's like playing a solo in Jazz feeling good/strong because of the changes and harmonies; like being giving music to play and feeling experienced enough to hear/play the spaces between the notes. No, I wouldn't say Morgan Harlow is a music poet but I know music is part of her gift. I believe the poet's eyes are ears and the poet's ears eyes. See... I feel I am the question mark at the conclusion of "The New" almost self-loathing in its gallery... where I

"think Byzantium. Sphinx and writing with inks"

or maybe beautifully worse:

"...as Hamlet needed/his father"

(over and over at once in my head) from her naked fountain of "Joan Miro, Ciphers and Constellations in Love with a Woman, 1941".

There's too much in nothing to say and thinking becomes inner dialogue cutting off a nameless speaker unexpectedly met in "Gorilla Dreams" who is that surprise between subtle and sharp clear as

"Outside over an angular concrete façade,

the night sky"

Again, the music poet finds the sound- so much in so little space/precision equaling rhythm. But maybe I am more like her poem "Nursery Rhymes" as in believing instinctive choices when they are the same as vision in

"they possess the aura of the first trees

Anyone took notice of"

from "The Undeniable Mystique of Silver Birch Trees" ...

Fantastical observations 11 Nov. 2013
By Judy Weidman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I knew the first time I read this collection of poems that I would want to go back and reread it time and again. With each reading, I discover a deeper--or even alternate--meaning to random poems that I thought I had gotten to the bottom of. In my mind, the layers are nearly infinite.
I have certain favorites--like Park Statue--which is only a sentence long but speaks volumes. While it's completely different from, say, What They Were Reading, all of the poems share the author's whimsical observations of life and especially of the natural world (both real and imagined).
This is a book I'm happy to have in my collection.
