Customer Review

on 1 April 2017
Oonah Joslin wonders, as in her introduction, where “the light and the music” comes from. This collection, about awareness, perception and understanding, is an exploration of memory and dream. These are poems about sense and sensation, the poetry in all things. Visions of a world sometimes painfully beautiful to behold.
Whether an extraordinary ekphrastic poem about a painting of Prometheus, or bearing witness to time itself, as in her poem Pipestone (“I see/ by rock am seen”); she draws the threads around her into a fascinating body of work.
There are contemplative pieces, yet with poems like Unreality Realised and Phase Transition the metaphysical becomes strikingly personal. She writes character studies, both poignant and humourous, as well as meditations that range from playful to stark.
She writes about the rhythms of the world, found at all times, in all places. From discovering New York to relating her love of the sea. Death, loss, music, literature, we are all of these things, she knows; and the story of more.
I have been a fan of her work for some time, and any lover of poetry should seek her out, this collection is a striking introduction.
