Thanks to Chistina M.R. Norcross for this Amazon Review on the Handheld Mirror of the Mind.
In her opening, ten-part poem, Diane Guarnieri invites us to honor our vast history of all beings, all creatures, and all understandings of faith to join together, “as global dreamers in coexistence.” In “Everyone has their own hallelujah,” she celebrates a reverent appreciation for the gifts of ancestors. These are musical, artful poems. Guarnieri has a gift for bringing to life the real and the unreal, and even things we cannot see, like the wind. Diane Guarnieri has the ability to describe even a junco bird with a sense of magic, and we are instantly beguiled. The Handheld Mirror of the Mind (Kelsay Books, 2018) is a beautiful poetry collection, which you will want to return to again and again!
