Heart’s Hydrography

Heart’s Hydrography

Everyday perceptions made radiant.

ISBN: 9780888017598
Author: Sally Ito

Everyday perceptions made radiant.

In her fourth book of poetry, Sally Ito traverses the complex channels and tributaries of a heart mapped by the ineffable pull of family and faith. In Ito’s careful hands, this same heart becomes ocean and cathedral, a hallowed space in which poetic organ-song crystalizes into poems resonant with hope, love, doubt, and longing. Heart's Hydrography charts the vital ebb and flow between the personal and the divine.

Winter landscapes, water landscapes, the landscapes of family love and frustration, and of the soul’s seasons - all these are mapped by Sally Ito with deep compassion and richly tactile images. Everyday perceptions made radiant.
