A Run at the Moon

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Often whimsical, sometimes disturbing, these poems revel in language and image and myth. Whether pausing over the moment of a goldfish's passing, speculating on the contents of a goddess's wallet, testing the sharp edges of memory or exploring the significance of skin, the poems in this collection find the odd in the ordinary and the luminous in the lost.

I have just reread this little masterpiece and encourage others to acquire it and treasure it. Jean Sheppard slyly insinuates her wit, wisdom and imagery into our reading experience.

Jean Sheppard's A RUN AT THE MOON is a must read. Whimsical, witty, insightful, she manages to transform the ordinary, the every day occurrence, into a journey of of light and discovery. So well does she craft her poems that the reader is carried along that journey in delight. You will find poems here that you will read again and again and each time find yourself nodding in agreement and smiling.
