by Marie Merchand

Summary: In this collection, Marie Marchand’s poems traverse the domains of reverence,
resilience, and reverie. While some poems move through despair into hope, others hover in the
questions and stand as witnesses to life’s emerging dialectic. Marchand illuminates the transcendent
within the ordinary, so that a trip to the grocery store becomes a holy surrender, and “orphaned
earrings” and “crayons melted by the sun” become infused with revelatory presence. Marchand’s
poems exude a quiet power of deepening awareness, inviting the reader to a place of healing.
