Love in Your Own Embrace

Love when blesses us when it wrongs us in the body and in the soul I sink the nails in her full with blood heart in the flesh naked I devise the kiss *** I learned nothing apart from your name I found in him rays the fire it controls Love the sun heats my memory and my heart *** when narcissus blooms its flame burns him the ash it makes dust of diamond a sin sweet that to love him creates a holy communion and him it makes holy *** In both hearts that remained chronic small it is born it grows love in your own embrace

The opponents have receded The poisons human mind They ruined ths reality They left back destruction *** In the ruins i found The chased innocence Above in piles from stones Just as fat drops of rain Invade from everywhere In the old house that Sometimes was familiar In the ruins refugees Alive a new child *** A rosy promise Chastity and youth Was rescued

This book rocked me, threw me off the chair in the little forest where I dwell. These poems made me cry, cheer, laugh, made chills run down my spine.
                        —Albino Carrillo

With intense human vulnerability and wondrous irony, Newberry’s matter-of-fact, descriptive storytelling renders the poignant moments of life
in an earnest tone that is both sensuous and nostalgic. WHERE IT GOES, altogether luminous and universal, relates us to one another, bringing us
closer to a rich understanding of our world and ourselves.
                        —Anne Tammel
