A celebration of season, WE STAY A BRIEF TELLING begins with the moment
just before winter... November... withdrawal. Unlike Vivaldi, who begins
his celebration of season with the allegro movement of spring, Bucher
crafts a slow entrance into the yearly cycle... adagio. Yet following
Vivaldi, Bucher finds much music in the seasons, much poetry, and many
harvests. In this fine collection, the author gives particular voice to
the music found in seasonal transition.

While there is much
seasonality to life, there is also much that falls between; moments
hard to speak to that are neither one season nor the next. The
collection begins with November Moment; a stark invitation to the
reader to stand naked at the edge of these more difficult
transitional moments of life. Bucher's poetry seeks to evoke a
hard-edged courage; November courage, standing open to the
ineluctable beauty of moments offering nothing but themselves.

6" x 9", 125 pages. Printed on archival quality paper.
