Sarah Rosenblatt laments, celebrates and questions the meaning of the ongoing story of time. Seasons speak but don’t recognize us. Time creeps through the windows in the same way it did with our ancestors. Light shines through and touches hope and sweetness but this is only fleeting, leaving us to a vast sky that doesn’t name us or our troubles. Leaves on the trees watch, hold and rot. The collection challenges the guts and touches the heart and soul of being alive in a story in which we are challenged to find meaning.
SARAH ROSENBLATT received an MFA from Brooklyn College, and an MSW from the Helen Bader School of Social Welfare. She is child and family therapist and lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is her third book of poems.

Editorial Reviews

“Rosenblatt’s lovely (volume) is a chronicle of dailiness. In short, attentive poems that are perfectly poised and transparent, she traces the passage of time in the middle of life so closely and so tenderly that it feels timeless.” - John Koethe
