    One thought on “Albedo”

    1. Albedo is a gorgeous, powerful poetry collection These poems are cut down to the bone, and what remains is absolutely essential The work is spare, but honest and open, exploring the real magic in everyday life, everyday grief The book is full of those small, startling moments that you carry around with you long after you ve finished reading This is a collection I ll go back to again and again.

    2. Gorgeous I found themes of winter, loneliness, calmness, quiet, loss, nature, and slow movement Lovely book all around from the words on the page, to the beautiful cover, and the comfortable feeling of the book in my hand.
