Waiting for the Southerly

Publisher: Ginninderra Press Release date: 2016-03-23

Description

';This first book is packed with clear-eyed veracity, offers a shining resilience, personal insight and shared comfortwe are enjoined, a chorus.' Les WicksFew poets express the meeting of nature and emotion as tenderly as Susan McCreery. Her poems open with images of nature and draw the reader in to scenarios of such heartbreak and love it is at times hard to surface. The sparkle of a boy playing in the surf, the metallic sound of betrayal on a Greek island, the humidity of a summer's night part physical, part longing for what has been lost. Among these gentle poems are suggestions of violence, of politics, of alienation, all held in a lacuna, waiting for that southerly to bring the pressure down.
