DRAGON CHILD by Marina Sanchez
Pub Acumen Publications ISBN 978-1-873161-45-6
 
DRAGON CHILD is a short collection in the wonderful Acumen Occasional Pamphlet series capturing the experience of a mother who has a daughter diagnosed with CHARGE syndrome.  As you would expect the poems show the highs and lows of the difficult journey taken by them both.  These poems capture some of that experience in a way that is direct and real. A fine exploration that is poignant without being over sentimental. They are examples of how practicality, hope and love show the way through a landscape that has no other map.  (Jim Bennett, Poetry Kit)

Outstanding poems for me – Skirt, Her Neural Pathways, Last Year My Sofia Went Away
