Reviews - What do customers think about Eden in the Rearview Mirror?
A gentle outpouring of emotion, flowing freely with every word. Nov 4, 2007
Eden in the Rearview Mirror is a collection of original free-verse poetry by author Susan Elbe. Crafted from loss, the verses reflect heartbreak but also the fondness of memories, and reflections upon the timeless beauty of nature. A gentle outpouring of emotion, flowing freely with every word. "If I Loved Him, It Would Be This Way": Night like a giant manta ray brushes / the screens with hushed velvet wings. / Under the slant roof, in a kelp-sway of trees / I lie on a thin, cottage bed / and whether it is wind or rain blowing through, / I only know it's green, / rolling down through moss, deep / into algae, and deeper, where green declines / to the dark verdancy glyphed / in a plum or the body's first minnowing.
