DISTURBING BORDERS by Alida Woods
Alida Woods’ voice brims with sincerity and directness, freshness and accessibility in straightforward, unstinting, close-to-the-bone language that conveys clear emotion, like the flow of water. Her emotions spill over the page, and her poems always come across for the reader.
–Tina Barr, The Gathering Eye, Kaleidescope
Introspective and meditative, Woods’ poems describe how desert, sea coast, suburban gardens, highways, children, ageing parents and things lost transport her to places “beyond maps.”
