Poetry. "LUCK delivers a whole life in snapshots taken at moments of bell-like clarity in late afternoon just before half-light descends. Accessible, highly compressed phrases and luminous language. Complete awareness of life's transience and of thought's transience at the same time. Full range of feeling. These poems are flowers that breathe in the soul and reflect back utterly resonant pictures"--Clive Matson.
