Using the threads of the liturgical hours of the day-matins, prime, lauds, etc. Mosby has woven a strikingly beautiful tapestry of lyrical poems. Her imagistic poem-prayers integrate the sensuality of the physical world with the transcendence of the spiritual world.

Mosby’s Prime petition, for example, probes the nature of sights:

Hone my gaze
to the riches
of detail —
slight as the fur
on a bee’s belly
or the veins, thin as breath,
lining a forgotten iris
translucent
as a wing —
rewards
the hasty eye
and anxious heart
do not recognize.”

Lovingly and hauntingly crafted, Mosby’s spiritual lyrics evoke the power and mystery of divine love. A worthy addition to all collections.
