The Blue Heron Speaks Featured Author for September 2018 is Diane Sahms-Guarnieri!
Welcome to the September 2018 Blue Heron Speaks Feature! This month, we shine a spotlight on BHR contributor, Diane Sahms-Guarnieri, who is a stunning wordsmith. In her collection, The Handheld Mirror of the Mind (Kelsay Books, 2018), we journey through themes of loss, grief, our shared humanity, and the complexities of the inner life. With great tenderness and lyricism, Guarnieri skillfully navigates these topics. Her graceful descriptions of the natural world provide a vivid magic, as if painting with words. While dealing with human struggles, this collection offers hope. Guarnieri invites us to honor all beings, all creatures, and all understandings of faith by joining together, “as global dreamers in coexistence.”
