An encore Dick Staub Interview with poet Luci Shaw about her beautiful gathering of contemporary lyric poems by best-selling author and poet Luci Shaw celebrates both the magnificence and the meaning of water in its myriad forms. Water Lines: New and Selected Poems includes sixty-three new and selected poems by Shaw, all reflecting the evocative nature of water. As with all her poetry on creation, Shaw sees the invisible, thinks the universal, and finds in the natural world superb metaphors for human life: "I think it's the fluidity of water â€ the way it constantly renews itself â€ that reminds me of the possibility, and the need, for change and renewal." "Water Lines" vividly captures water's effects on our senses and invites us to explore this persistent reality, which "pools in the Creator's hand," Shaw says, "and falls, like blessing, on all our heads." Filled with luminous images and insights, "Water Lines" is a book to give, to receive, to savor.
