Book Description: Every once in a while you stumble upon something incredibly special and unique. If you are reading this poetry collection you are one of the lucky ones.
These thoughts are profound – exploring worlds of nothingness and the empty spaces people used to occupy. Ghost memories, barely there yet impossible to ignore. Verse that is personal, emotive, intimate, explosive and intense. Poetry about the rough and tumble of lust, the symmetry of love, the wreckage when it all goes bad.
At times abstract, spinning through inner and outer energies towards places that, once upon a time, were people; now ruins, left to turn to dust seemingly in the blink of an eye. Foundations sustained by better days but ravaged by age and tempestuous weather, a sparkling gold universe turned to decay.
Candace Meredith has perfected her craft and turned something otherwise ordinary into something extraordinary. Her words paint pictures and bring forth memories, long hidden. She writes moments that take your breath away, her sentences are velvet.
– L. J. Diaz, author of Catching Snowflakes
Preface . . .
As I sit alone in the room I’m in whether it be the sun porch, my own bedroom or the balcony of the hotel, I sit and write while extracting from within something that feels more profound than the simple function of thinking. Poetry stems from a contemplative moment that resonates deeply within and as I focus on an image, object or idea I turn it over in my thoughts to bring alive that “thing” on the page; in short, I write as I feel in the moment and rarely do I ever want to let it go – so I write it down and I keep that thought with me for as long as I need to so I can sense and feel beyond an ordinary thought.
