For me, many of the poems in this collection read nearly as flash fiction (in some cases, with line breaks--very prose-ish) or short scenes, even creative nonfiction. In most cases, had I been hearing the poems, I'm not sure I would have realized it was written as poetry. In most cases, the poems here were amusing, but as a whole, there wasn't enough here to hold me into the collection or make me feel anything for many of the situations and poems. Simply, I found it all an amusing diversion, but none of the poems here would bring me back for a second read, or draw me to pass them on. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393041999, Hardcover)

An anticipated new volume from Marie Howe whose “poetry is luminous, intense, eloquent, rooted in abundant inner life” (Stanley Kunitz).

Hurrying through errands, attending a dying mother, helping her own child down the playground slide, the speaker in these poems wonders: what is the difference between the self and the soul? The secular and the sacred? Where is the kingdom of heaven? And how does one live in Ordinary Time—during those periods that are not apparently miraculous?
