What Morning Illuminates
by Suzanne Hancock

What Morning Illuminates is a whole world within a small, sure space. Suzanne Hancock writes to the dead and the living, of family and friends and lovers, of the immense map of the heart that seems, through poetry, close and compact enough to hold in our hands. These poems are both delicate and strong; they offer us perceptions that resonate far beyond their borders”
– Janice Kulyk Keefer

What Morning Illuminates is a quiet exploration of moments. Moments spoken about and passed down, curled around branches and hidden behind windows. It is a collection about loss, memory and reverence for sorrow and joy. The poems are little stories that speak to each other. They are attempts to put into language parts of myself and the things that surround me”
– Suzanne Hancock
