|Calling upon the energy of origins, Cindy Rinne's sensuous Listen to the Codex parallels a woman's journey with the cycles of the earth. These imaginative poems of opening, embodiment, and surprise bring the sacred to the everyday: lighting candles and sage, invoking meditation, chanting, dirt rituals, and the guidance of a self-healing robot. A book of flight and remembrance, Rinne shows how the act of losing and finding calls us to listen, root ourselves in the natural world, and "breathe a circular breath." - Jennifer K. Sweeney, author of Little Spells and How to Live on Bread and Music|
