Circadian (Penguin Poets)

Circadian (Penguin Poets) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Joanna Klink's new book, Circadian, is a wonderful exploration of inner and outer landscapes, speaking to the underlying rhythm that connects us, even in the most solitary moments, to the world around us. Klink's poems always seem to have a meditative elegance and beauty even as they hint at the subtle threat of violence and fear that lies just beneath the surface of so much of our world.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A beautiful new collection from an acclaimed poet.

The poems in Joanna Klink's passionate new collection Circadian take as their guiding vision circadian clocks. Moved by the presence and withdrawal of light, these internal clocks influence rhythms of sleeping and waking: the opening and closing of flowers, the speed at which the heart pumps blood, the migratory cycles of birds. With love poems and wintry prayers, Joanna Klink offers us patterns of glowing alertness and shared life, patterns that speak to the flickering circuit between inner and outer landscapes, that bind each beating heart to the pull of the tides.
