The late evening photo shows several delicate, bare trees in silhouette, leaning slightly to the right, against a violet-colored sky. There is a faint streak of pinkish light to the right of the trees, low on the horizon. Thousands of stars are visible in the sky. The solid black landscape below the trees appears to be the shore of a darkened lake, which is in the foreground. A few stars are reflected in the water. The overall impression is one of stillness and beauty. The predominant colors are black and violet, along with white pinpoints of starlight. The title and subtitle are in white at the top of the cover, and the author’s name is in white at the bottom.

Excerpt from Prologue
Lynda Lambert covers a wide terrain of subjects and topics in this new book, from lights to legends to seasons, treating us to images and metaphors about plants, people and weather. She opens this large collection with the title poem, Star Signs, which walks us through the alphabet as it digs through thoughts, emotions and observations, “Using star signs to map out new terrain.”
Throughout this book of poems, these gems of poetic creation shimmer like beads on her fabric art, like bold brush strokes of color on her paintings, and reflect light like the gemstones on her prize–winning piece of mixed–media fiber artwork. It seems this entire collection is like a multifaceted mural.
Her attentiveness to nature and strong reflections from memory have woven from a collage of remnants a beautiful tapestry for us. It offers a wonderful feast for the eyes and the mind.
—Wesley D. Sims, author ofTaste of Change.

Excerpt from the Introduction
I learned rapidly that no one knew what to do with me. No one in my family or circle of friends knew anything about blindness. My doctors understood how to diagnose me, but not what to do from there. I did not know anyone who had profound sight loss. For a few maddening months, I tried to figure out what to do next. I thought my life was over, since I could do nothing I had done previously.

Excerpt from the Foreword
Light falling on Alpine villages, a stone street in Berchtesgaden, the memorial at Lidice (where 88 children were among the 483 slaughtered in this Czech village). jagged mountains wrapped in mist, a Picasso or Miro’ hanging in a museum , the centuries-old domed cathedral of Salzburg, fields blooming with Queen Anne’s lace–these are among Lynda Lambert’s subjects in her first book of poems. Each poem is a tribute to the thing itself, caught in a moment of time and introspection blended with her artist’s eye for color, light, texture…and tone…
