poems speak in the voice of an old, trusted friend
who knows you, who has come to visit and remind you
of who you are and what a life is all about. They
speak not of the highs and lows, but about the grey
space between tragedy and tenderness, memory and
loss, fragility and perseverance - that space where
the soul and the truest self live."
- Richard Blanco, Presidential
"Kim Dower's poetry is a kind of miracle ...
wild with poetry's particular fever, tempered by a
rich inner life, fed by wisdom and knowledge one
gets walking up and down upon the earth with all of
one's senses fully alert - this fever can turn into
art, as it has, in poem after poem."
- Thomas Lux
