Decima Wraxall / Flame

  • Decima Wraxall / Flame
“A second gratifying collection of poems from Decima Wraxall. Flame is an odyssey of diverse themes from nature, history, anxiety, loss, love, transcendence. Always a liminal struggle from the certainty of ‘staircase houses and hedges clipped into obedience’ to being on the thresholds ‘lit by firefly light’, ‘gardens taking golden sun baths before dark’, ‘a miracle clasped in loving arms’, ‘the surge of one melds with ripples of the other’, I am reminded of Kahlil Gibran’s words: ‘the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears’. Delight in poems that speak to the paradox of dreams, courage, and spirituality, a cornucopia of the poetic emotional spectrum. Enjoy the marvels of the natural world, the honesty of family and the joys and trials of international travel.” - Colleen Keating
