Of Eyes and Iris

by Erika Moss Gordon

Erica Moss Gordon's first book shines with the purity of a mountain stream, dances with sunlight, and shivers with the chill of perception. Refreshing with its simplicity yet rich in wisdom, Of Eyes and Iris, punctuates its quite voice with echoes of illumination. (Available in our Lulu Bookstore as a Premium First Edition Chapbook or as an e-book in pdf or epub formats. It is also available for Kindle Readers directly from our Kindle Book Shelf.)

What others are saying about Of Eyes and Iris:

"In an age of overflow, Erika Moss Gordon cuts to the core. She wields language like a pearled knife, honed to epiphany. Carving the lyric essentials out of life's odd loaf. Here's a first book that sets a gourmet table and serves up a dazzling meal of bread and water."
~ Art Goodtimes, Poet Laureate of Colorado's Western Slope

"Reverent. Humble. Beautiful. Like tiny lights in a great darkness, these poems lead us into realms where everything we thought we knew is new again, where everything is possible, even nothing. Wherever you are, this book will meet you."
~ Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, Winner of 2011 The Writer's Studio Literary Contest

"Erika Moss Gordon lives in the now. Her generosity and strength are echoed in her work. Many of her poems are like modern Upanishads, gems of hard won wisdom drawn in with every breath. The poems remind us to take in the landscape of our fears and dreams, to notice when they converge and when they transform, to examine how these inner landscapes mirror the natural world. This is a poet who delights in not finding the answers, but embracing uncertainty with mindfulness and a gratefulness of the heart."
~ Kierstin Bridger, Winner of the 2011 Mark Fischer Poetry Prize
