Extraction Of Arrows

Extraction of Arrows is Kathryn Lomer’s first collection of poetry.

Available. Dispatched 2-3 business days

Divided into three parts, the poems represent a journey, beginning with traveling days in Ireland and Spain and with glances back to childhood in rural Tasmania; to the barbed ecstasy of sexual awakening and the heart’s disappointment; to the unmapped journey into birth and motherhood; arriving finally at relationship’s harmony and self forgiveness. Through the fragile humanity of this collection comes a connectedness, which points the direction home.

Kathryn Lomer, author of Two Kinds Of Silence, Extraction Of Arrows, Night Writing, Camera Obscura, The Spare Room, What Now, Tilda B?, and The God In The Ink
