For centuries, the moon has captivated our imagination, influenced our bodies, and penetrated our dreams in all her evanescent, full and mysterious glory. Moon Talk, by Wade Stevenson pays a metaphorical tribute to the golden glowing orb whose raw, ubiquitous power can sway the tides, and dances like the moon herself between the dark and light, the fixed and fungible, a chiaroscuro of our favorite heavenly body.
The book is set in three parts: poems, musings, and some final thoughts and reflections of other poets and writers who have come before and all paid homage to the moon. Moon Talk may spark a need to close your eyes and lose yourself in reverie, or maybe even go outside and howl at the moon.
I liked it.
Yes, it’s a lovely book.
