Published by Mountain Gate Press in Hillsboro, Oregon, Pacific is Ce Rosenow’s second full-length collection of haiku and its poems focus on the Pacific Northwest coastline.
“With an extraordinary sense of sound and unending motion, Pacific celebrates the cycle of life. In this book, Ce Rosenow transports readers to the aquatic world: she alerts with originality, symbolic deftness, euphony and an exactitude of typography. Her poems are compassionate. How fluently the lovers in Pacific tell their ebbs and flows. Listen closely to the enchantment and imagine what this book could add to the disciplines of ecology, geology, and oceanography.” Lenard D. Moore
“These poems are indeed just like waves – some quiet, some stormy. A few poems are precise observations of nature that evoke the tranquility of the moment or the setting. Others are darker, revealing life’s pressures, but always with a sense of acceptance. Acceptance, ultimately, is a central stance of this book, welcoming what is received, to the point of celebration.” Michael Dylan Welch
