Waiting to Sail

A new full-length book of poetry by Georgia Ressmeyer


"Take a deep breath... Listen to the waves crash, the swooping gulls (Floundering), the silence.  Notice the empty room, the door (Song for Two Voices), the fragility of being human (Last Walk).  What does the Lake Michigan wind bring to the heart?  It brings the white pelican, the storm, the calm, destruction and birth.  What does the wind take away?  The feather, a father, the storm.  Share Ressmeyer’s natural language and unforgettable imagery through the seasons by the water.  Don’t wait.  Sail with her."

~ Bruce Dethlefsen, Wisconsin Poet Laureate (2011-2012)
