So Ecstasy Can Find You

So Ecstasy Can Find YouSo Ecstasy Can Find You by Elizabeth Cunningham

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I adore everything Elizabeth Cunningham writes and loved this collection. The title and cover feel like a complete poem and meditation. Indeed, many of the poems are meditations, inspire contemplation, (gently) demand introspection. Elizabeth makes walks in nature, daily chores, and time with a dying friend beautiful. I particularly appreciate her reflections in Hazardous Heart which echo the poignant regrets that I feel in failing, even while (or as a result of) doing my best.

The book can be read and enjoyed quickly, easily, lightly. It can also be savored and relished, as the title poem encourages us to slow down, so ecstasy can find us.
