Ghost of the Eye, by Roselyn Elliott, published by Finishing Line Press, is a collection of twenty-six lyrical poems that weave the paradox of uncertainty and loss with the "beauty and hope" contained in nature. With a discerning eye, powerful use of metaphor and vivid imagery, the poet's careful observations bring forward the expectation of survival and healing against a backdrop of natural forces and life's "dangerous realities." Elliott's careful examination of what we think we see and experience, and how we respond to our perceptions, in this, her fourth collection of poems, reassures that we will endure despite seemingly random obstacles and pain.
