Praise for Audrey Streetman’s River of Light

Audrey Streetman’s River of Light provides us the experience of her excellent perspicacity that is superseded only by her poetic sensitivity.

Audrey Streetman’s image-magic transports us across time and space from a grandson’s birth to the wet thighs of morning, from an abandoned town where store fronts stand like pillars of salt to the cyst on the ovary of post-bombing Oklahoma City. In A Chain of Events, Streetman writes, A person’s life is a collection of stories. River of Light’s poetic storytelling invites us to experience life’s joy and sorrow, grief and love, as chronicled by a remarkable woman.

River of Light is a prime example of Audrey Streetman’s artistry. Her poetry touches deeply, ignites thought, establishes kinship. This collection covers Audrey’s poetic art over more than three decades, following the unbroken thread of her acute perception of emotional depths. Her insights are sometimes couched in metaphor, sometimes in literal references; but always they are rooted in the touchstones of faith, memory, and spiritual quest. In River of Light, Audrey’s paintbrush of words forms striking imagery– light slips under the wing of night ; recalls milestones which rake the leaves of the past ; queries existence and beliefs; and glows with all the colors of human experience.
