By Wade Kearley
Drawing on Water takes the reader on a journey through a world of pathos, anger, joy, and rebirth. On the surface, the heightened realism of the poetry regards commonplace objects and everyday experiences from startling new angles. But Wade Kearley’s poetry is also a window on a deeper world, a place where mood, meaning and sound merge, creating a powerful voyage of self-discovery.
Drawing on Water was written over a period of 15 years and merges classical and modern poetic forms to create its own unique style.
