By Marian Francis White
Mind Your Eyes is Marian Frances White’s second book of poetry. Through her direct yet subtle voice that is carved from the elemental longing of life in Newfoundland, White takes us on a journey through the secrets of her ancestral survival, to travels that conjure up the beauty of a Jamaican night, or a communion with the Greek gods and goddesses. In, Mind Your Eyes, there is an underlying current of belonging to the global community, one where a poem can take us to an encounter with forbidden love and back to the watchful eye of a lover. In the three sections of Mind Your Eyes, there is room for readers to move in, get comfortable, and make themselves at home.
