Item description for Writing the River by Luci Shaw...
"Writing the River traces the steps of a writer who cocks her ear to listen for spiritual reality. The book is a record of her search into everything - rivers and bread and closets - and sometimes, as if by miracle, she finds what she is looking for. And whether she tells about the search or the finding, she writes with utter clarity." -Jeanne Murray Walker, poet, author of Coming Into History "In Writing the River and elsewhere, Luci Shaw's poems provide us with sudden, surprising images and metaphors infused with spiritual significance even when purely about the natural world, and profoundly human and natural even when about a clearly religious subject. Her language is sensuous and musical and highly visual. All who value poetry that includes the spiritual dimension of experience will value hers." -Robert Siegel, poet, author of In a Pig's Eye Luci Shaw is author of eight volumes of poetry, among them Listen to the Green, Water Lines, and Polishing the Petoskey Stone. Her other books include Water My Soul and God in the Dark: Through Grief and Beyond. Since 1988 Shaw has been adjunct faculty member and Writer in Residence at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Reviews - What do customers think about Writing the River?
Embraces Life. Sep 9, 2001
Shaw's honesty before God and her readers is sometimes plaintive, yet filled with celebration. She is much like Annie Dillard with her keen eye and ear for detail. Like Dillard, she writes from her own Christian perspective, but conveys a spirituality that is completely open to all. If you're a spiritually minded person of any persuasion, you'll love her poetry. It speaks to both heart and mind.
