SHORT OF BREATH by Vivien Jones
Cultured Llama 978-0-9926485-5-8  

This collection of poems call on skills of observation and understanding that Vivian Jones has in abundance. The images are sharp the insights and juxtapositions outstanding and memorable. This is a collection of poems that once read will be returned to time and again.  The poems collected into short sequences and presented in sections, Layperson’s Science and Wood and the Making Process, are two of them, the others are to do with places, music and the changing world.  I am very pleased to recommend this collection. .
