An elegantly written, earnest collection…

With this meditative collection of poems and essays, Schmit balances mysticism with a celebration of the everyday. Earnest and reflective with a continual undertone of humor, poems in the collection capture the essence of spirituality with a lyricism that rises from astute observations. In “New Rule,” Schmit explores the essence of true faith (It’s possible to have the Christ/in ways unbelievable to believers, /but to believe He has us, /that’s worth breaking bread). In “Cusp Overflows,” he marvels at the light the birth of a new baby brings in the life of people around her. Though Schmit’s forms vary (vacillating between long and short lines and stanzas), the underlying tone stays consistent throughout the book: there’s much to marvel at in everyday life and to explore the handiwork of God. Readers looking for spiritual renewal will find this beautifully crafted, perceptive collection worthy of their time.
