I'm not a big poetry person. Like art, I know what I like but I don't know anything ABOUT poetry. I tend to shy away from reading poetry.
A friend I trust told me about Priya Huffman's work so, taking his word for it, I took a look. Wow!
I could feel her textures. I could float on the breeze of her thoughts. On a cold day, I could feel the warmth.
This book is on my "most cherished bookshelf" and never far from my reading chair.
She brings us into her intimate world … and ultimately into her experience of nature …
These poems are poignant, simple and complex, humorous, sad , honest, light, each one exquisite …
"…….summer's magic yet again
pulls a rabbit out of a hat
in spite of rising oceans
raging storms and boiling deserts
even through we do not know
what will become of us all
on this day from this tree
the sun shines upon a prefect
peach that has made itself …"
If i had to let go of most of my possessions this little book would be one i would keep to take to my next bedside ...
the poems breathe quietude .. evoke imagination … perhaps influence a dream
The poem "Our last mattress" asks what is a lifetime? What is a guarantee? The poem "Dying to live" has a "client" speaking of her chemo and her young children and "I can hear the sound/of hair letting go. did you know, she says/there is a sound/ a single follicle/ releasing its hold/ a sound as faint/ as leaves unmooring/ from their tethers/ at summers end."
This is the tremendous power of The Territory of Home in a nutshell: Huffman helps the readers to discover the sounds, tastes, feelings in a new mattress,of tea served in bed, in the smile of a grandchild.
This is the poetry book I keep by my bed: A poem or two at night or in the morning, and I have prepared my night or day for its full potential.
