Between Sky And Water by Russell “Rusty” Bourne
From the book jacket: “This collection by Russell Bourne will move readers into the spaces of their own hearts as they share the poet’s journeys to places he loves. Whether the speaker of a poem is alone or in the company of a beloved, the poems generously share their details, creating intimacy, as well as awareness of how precious and fleeting all of life is. These poems have the weight of stillness, the gravity of contemplation, and the freedom of the senses that give them wings”.
For many years, Rusty spent summers in Maine and winters in the Finger Lakes. His collection is a reflection of his life and loves in both locations. For more on the poet, and his reading given at Lifelong in Ithaca, NY in April 2019, check out this article in the Ithaca Times.
