Sublime Planet, a collection of poetry by Magdalena Ball and Carolyn Howard Johnson is both a celebration of the wonderful planet we live in and a reminder to all of us that we must never take it for granted This is a very balanced collection erudite yet lyrical DNA you gave upin ashes, nature s hardiest gift Favourite poems The Impervious Stones of MaltaThe GiraffeEndangered SpeciesHedgeThese Heavy SandsPlane Strain I have never read a poetry book before, but since I kinda know Magdalena Ball I was perfectly willing to give this a try While I realized poetry will never be a big thing for me, I did enjoy most of it, though a lot certainly went over my head.Carolyn Howard Johnson s poems should be read in the middle of a forest or meadow, or on the top of an Austrian mountain range You can perfectly read it at home, but then you ll imagine the walls slowly being overgrown by plants, the walls crumbling to ruins as nature conquers over civilization In any case, you need to read them in absence of engine noises, electronic music, the hum of industry These poems applaud nature.Magdalena Ball s half of the book is a bit different and with these poems I felt a sense of loss, of loneliness, of a search for some connection that isn t there and will possibly never come With most of them I had a harder time making sense of them, but with others I felt a deep, personal connection as if they had been gripped out of my life Word Wall is easily my favorite. A Celebration of EarthOur world is both magnificent and terrible These poems celebrate both aspects I delighted in the lush images of places I ve loved seeing them through the eyes of someone who loved them, too Santa Ana winds, poppies, the plains of Kansas There are also harsh poems like Trash Tree that show us the dark side of ourselves and the world My favorite is The Man I Love and the Writing Spider because it s so close to my own experience I watch the spider build a web of silver threads delighting in the intricacy, but when it leaves the web and wants to come inside, it becomes the enemy I want to squash it, but I m grateful when some braver person rescues it and gives it another chance at life or death.The poems not only invite you to relive sensuous experiences, but they make you think about the world, how important it is, and how we need to care for it The book is a wonderful gift for Earth Day A good time to meditate on the magnificence of the world.
