Glimpses from scripture indeed, giving a voice to women who remain otherwise under the radar. This is the first book of poetry by Claire Wilson. She take us behind the scenes of the Bible story, and probes the psyche of some well-known characters. She imagines sitting on a bench with the reader:
Sit awhile and share.
This bench will bear your weight till
melody rings clear.
I am delighted to recommend this first collection of poems by Claire Wilson. Many hitherto muted biblical women share here their innermost thoughts with Claire as confidante. We fellow travellers on the train of time find ourselves gifted quiet drifts of poignant conversation, our reflections melding them with distant yet unexpectedly familiar landscapes.
Fearghas McFhionnlaigh, poet
Her courageously creative poetry takes us into a place of challenge and heightened perception. I shall never think of Potiphar’s wife, Bathsheba, or Peter’s mother-in-law in the same way again!
