Luna de cal / Limestone Moon

Poemas / Poems

In Limestone Moon Olivia Maciel interrogates the inexpressible. Metaphor reaches into a realm of light and darkness to mysteriously converse with the silence enveloping the word. The tinging of this dark light which transcends borders, reveals a vehement and genuine interior, impregnated by the seed of the dream. With almost religious intensity, the poems yield a rare fruit, whose taste evokes the ineffable.

Reviews

“Beautiful poems. . . . The rapid semantic lancing of ‘Sebastián’ weaves together a beautiful web of concepts. And let’s not forget ‘The Bagpiper,’ with its airy volatile ending, nor ‘Nocturnal Delight’ with its sufi-like flavor.”

Alan E. Smith | Sirena
