Her heart is a lily ready to bloom.
Mine is a garden of children and dogs,
family and friends, some in the ground.” From “Willow and Bark”
In a world of chaos, Sally Sandler speaks to the generations who yearn for the past and face many prospects of loss—of self, of loved ones, of the planet, and particularly of time. Yet she finds that each loss is a portal to discovery and often expresses this through elements she observes with a keen eye in the natural world.
Her poems have been called “transcendent, lyrical and honest,” and she is known for language that is simple yet elegant, language that makes her poetry accessible and readable.
