Poetry. SAVING THE APPEARANCES recounts a quest for wholeness, the Truth thatabides in and reveals the heart. Seeking to discover "the true form ofthe edifice of the world," a building both containing and accounting for--saving--the appearances encountered on the way, these poems evince the mystery of the act of seeing, beauty of the natural world, an power of the longing that engenders its contemplation. "Rarely does one findsuch vulnerability and sadness so luxuriantly, inventively dressed out, so playful, so cured"--John Reider, TINFISH
