"My poems are rituals. By ritual I mean precise machines, airplanes, which convey the traveler from one place to another. "Rainbringer" is a road map for seekers, a trail marker for the emptied ones. Field notes, advice and anecdotes entertain along the way. The lilies I offer you have been gathered climbing the mountains, swimming the sea and bringing the rain." Well known for her visionary realist paintings, Cynthia West is also skilled in poetry, photography, digital imaging, book arts and pottery. Her home, where she has lived for thirty years with her husband and family, is a renowned healing center, as well as her studio and gallery. Many who travel great distances to receive treatments find refuge in her remarkable art and gardens. West painted for nineteen years in a studio on the plaza in Santa Fe. Her works exhibit widely and in collections all over the world. She is the author of two previous books of poetry: "For Beauty Way" and "1000 Stone Buddhas."
