Fifty-Word Review: Forth a Raven, by Christina Davis

(Originally appeared in December 2013)

Christina Davis’s Forth a Raven offers stark, textured, intelligent and lyrical pieces in a stripped-down yet ultimately complex, reflective language. Encompassing the tension of different realms – the spiritual and the secular, the extraordinary and the mundane, her work, quite simply, astounds. Read this book. Seek out her work. It’s sublime.

  2. “Encompassing the tension of different realms – the spiritual and the secular, the extraordinary and the mundane..” Somehow these realms are not so different to me. ; ) This sounds like a book I would enjoy.

    Thanks for visiting me. I really enjoyed checking out your work… As a former English teacher and a lover of poetry, those who commit to the craft and are successful leave me awe-struck. Your writing is lovely.

  3. Short and sweet, like the finest joys in life.
    Sunsets, soft rain, the cool evening breeze after a hot day, and the touch of a lover. The sweet kiss of loves first butterflies, to the tears that remind us of the better times once it ends. Even in pain there is joy.
