Yellow Doors: Poems
Panacea Pub. 2003
Each poem in Ruth Goring's debut collection opens a door into undiscovered countries: urgent rivers, wordless giants, soul-stirring music, fathers never known, voices that beckon and fade. Here are sorrow and sweetness, heartbreak and hope. The mundane is here, and also the numinous. At times they switch places. And in the strangeness of these landscapes the familiar is revisioned.
