Praise for Divining
In Divining, Brooke Sahni's poems exalt the borders between human and divine, child and woman, and her personal need to understand her inheritances. Sahni writes, "so many things are calling us / in and out of ourselves," which is the way these fine poems operate, moving in and out of the seemingly incongruent wisdoms this world offers, to create a spiritual self. Who else could write: "I am too young to conceptualize the soul / what I mean is, I don't think about metaphor"? In poems full of beauty and inquiry, Sahni takes nothing for granted.
