By H. L. Hix
H.L. Hix's measured crystalline particles of everyday life melt, moment by moment, into song.
“Shadows of Houses, H.L. Hix’s new collection, is both vatic and precise. Patiently looking at and through the quotidian, Hix registers the tiny and immense phenomena of change and variation the seasons and hours bring. The remarkable sequence ‘the God of Window Screens and Honeysuckle’ is a compendium of outer and inner weather—a naturalist’s neighbor’s, philospher’s, and poet’s almanac, and a source of wisdom and beauty I shall regularly return to.”—Rachel Hadas
