Between Sky and Water

Russell Bourne ’50. Cayuga Lake Books, February 2019. Available on Amazon. These poems will move readers into the spaces of their own hearts as they share the poet’s journeys to places he loves. Whether the speaker of a poem is alone or in the company of a beloved, the poems share their details, creating intimacy, as well as awareness of how precious and fleeting all of life is. These poems have the weight of stillness, the gravity of contemplation, and the freedom of the senses that give them wings.
