for How Does a Single Blade of Grass Thank the Sun?
“These poems distinguish themselves by the quality of their poetic intelligence. They are astute, linguistically and syntactically adept, and full of sonic energy. Often startlingly precise in their descriptions, they lead us from the bodily to the metaphysical. Sometimes they flare up like fireworks; sometimes they sound a quiet sorrowing over human distances and dilemmas.” — 2013 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award Jury (Mary Dalton, Susan Holbrook, and Phil Hall)
