Such a lovely read … and re-read.
“Through her 33 touching poems, Sally Sandler gives us the opportunity to ponder and appreciate those simple, everyday interactions and connections we could otherwise miss with family, friends, strangers, nature, pets, and more.” Five Stars, Amazon.com.
With this collection of poems, she returns to our roots in several ways. Some selections journey into the roots she shares with her generation of Baby Boomers–their “playgrounds,” their failing cocktail generation parents, their hopes, dreams and fears as they collectively move into the age of reflection. Others follow her personal family roots, revisiting her ancestors and the triumphs and tragedies of times past. Throughout the collection, she often reverses the current trend that favors free verse by returning instead to classic forms, to honor poetry’s own roots, lending her poems a universal and timeless appeal.
