Rebloomby: Lisa C. Krueger
Publication Date: October 2004
“Lisa Krueger’s shimmering first collection of poems, Rebloom, is a hymn to the gifts and weight of daily life. Lisa Krueger weaves with stunning simplicity the love, loss, and longing of being, and of being wife, mother, sister, and daughter. She renders daily illuminations behind the veil of everyday routine, the miracles of joy and sorrow. In Rebloom, the final movement amazes us with the great comfort of nature, of the earth, where she seizes renewal of life in the presence of death. Flowers, stem, earth, she sees the whole, and the whole is what heals. By digging, Lisa Krueger aerates the soil of her life, of this our life.”
“Lisa Krueger’s poetry mediates the threshold between events and their perception. The ordinary occurrence—reading, jogging, an illness—is saturated with empathy and becomes extra-ordinary. Hers is a narrative of sense. The reader grasps at once the story and its resonance.”
