published 2001 120 pages

Still in the Dream Time celebrates the natural and metaphysical worlds in a voice that is at once contemporary and classical, in forms that range from the epigram to the ode. The poems speak the “moments of inbetween” where, poised between presence and absence, a reader might hear the whispers of the unseen soul.
