« An Interview with Lawrence Joseph [by Aspen Matis] | Main | Creation According to the Cat [by Lera Auerbach] »

August 27, 2021


I am left speechless Maria, you and your writing are part of my life.

One of our treasures, whose touchstone is the Paterson in all of us, by whatever name or place we call it.

The saying is "out of the mouth of babes" comes poetic honesty and words that fill your mind with wonder. Maria is one of those "babes." Love you Maria; Evelyn

Ah, our beloved Maria! This recognition is more than deserved and somewhat tardy.

Can't wait to get this book in my hands and heart! Congratulations, Maria! Love, Rachel

This review captures the essence of the poems beautifully. When the Stars Were Still Visible is a wonderful book. The poems open the heart and touch readers on a deeply human level.

Can you think of anything less appetizing than sukiyaki watermelon?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
