How Small, Confronting Morning
Lola Haskins, How Small, Confronting Morning.

W.S. Merwin believes “Haskins writes with the startling freedom and grace of a kite flying, and with the variety and assurance of invention that reveal, in image after image, the dream behind the waking world.” In this, her 14th collection, she focuses on the natural world of inland Florida, writing poems “close to plein air” experiences.  The winner of 2 NEA Fellowships, as well as 4 Florida Cultural Affairs fellowships, “Haskins latest collection is as beguiling as the Florida creeks, tupelo trees and wading birds that grace its pages.” Cynthia Barnett.
