Extraction of Arrows
Extraction of Arrows is Kathryn Lomer’s first collection of poetry. Divided into three parts, the poems represent a journey, beginning with traveling days in Ireland and Spain and with glances back to childhood in rural Tasmania; to the barbed ecstasy of sexual awakening and the heart’s disappointment; to the unmapped journey into birth and motherhood; arriving finally at relationship’s harmony and self forgiveness. Through the fragile humanity of this collection comes a connectedness, which points the direction home.
