The Weather Wheel

The Weather Wheel In These New Poems, Each Of Them Written In Couplets And Contained Within The Space Of Sixteen Lines, Mimi Khalvati Takes The Weather, The Seasons And The Passage Of Night And Day As The Ground On Which She Draws Her Emblems Of Human Life And Love An Extended Elegy For Her Mother, The Book Is Also A Series Of Meditations On The Small Details Of Animals Lives, And On The Vulnerable Animal Within The Human Being. all is dusk,dusk in the heart, in all our finer feelings. You are the shadows who have miniaturised the cryosphere into a garden of paradise, yours the silhouettes facing fire The Weather Wheel is proof that such beauty can arise from the hardest of losses, like the loss of Khalvati s mother whom inspired many of these poems.
