Spinning - poetry by Marsha Berry
"Finally, a collection of exquisite poetry to live by...inspirational, magical, original...Kick off your shoes, rest your head on your favorite cushion, sip a glass of wine, and open to that first page of Marsha Berry's words ..
– Jacqueline Dick
"Vivid detail, surprising turns, and a touch of whimsy carried me along the pathway of Marsha's poems. They are a treat for all the senses, containing depth and riches, which reward each new reading."
– Matt Quinn
“Marsha Berry evokes both the natural world and the world of man with deftness and exquisite detail. Each word seems equally weighted and chosen with care. Marsha has seemingly dipped her pen in eldritch ink to produce a volume of mesmerizing verse steeped in mythologies of nature, balanced with dashes of poésie noire, light humour and thoughtful social commentary.”
– Chris Galvin, author of the forthcoming Breakfast under the Bodhi Tree
“In Spinning, Marsha Berry has charted a journey through a world transfigured with wonder. Meditative and philosophical, naturalistic and dreamlike, the poems glisten with unexpected detail as from the paintings of Paul Klee, works full of whimsical and enigmatic manifestations of reality in an otherwise imaginative framework. To paraphrase Rainer Maria Rilke – who once wrote of Klee that “I would have guessed that on many occasions his drawings were transcriptions of music” – Berry’s poetry, in its essence, is a transcription of life; and what a richness of life it is.”
