Beneath the surface commotion of a traditional life a woman strives to capture an immensity of being beyond her daily imaginings. The poems in this collection cluster around five waypoints an inland river might pass through on its journey to the sea—from the headwaters, to the riverbed, through the convulsions of cataracts and flood plains, to the fingers of the estuary reaching out into the sea.
