This is the first paragraph on the back cover of the new book: “A Moment of Sky! comes from the effervescent light of Midwest American faces, from thickening landscapes inside and outside of ourselves, hitched on precious memories and cartwheeling curiosity. Through Bill Lemmer’s eyes and ears in the chorusing of others to shape this poetry, the writing speaks simply and sincerely with a calm reassuring power, vibrant colour and rhythm, uplifting scenery, dialogue, and humour, with the intense cerebral quality of reverential release from the strain of unwanted mental noise in our daily routines. A Moment of Sky! is a book for full hearts to find vent on pages alongside these poems as well as a conduit for lively reading yourself and to those you care for – evoking personal awareness thru thoughts, feelings, memories, and sensations via the living voices of these poems.”
Bill Lemmer's other books are Freedom from Trauma in America, a novel, and Freedom from Trauma in Dementia: A Caregiving Guide, the latter from his work as a British Professor of Mental Health and Head of Department at Canterbury Christ Church University amd Director of the Dementia Cente for South East England.
