    I'm not a huge fan of free verse, and I don't consider a volume or book of poetry to have ever been fully "read". However, Weber's poetry, like her prose, connects us to herself and to the earth around her. She, like Frost, share an intimate love for and connection with the place and nature that they grew up in and that grew up around them. The poem "Not drowning but waving" is one I will commit to memory; it's intense. I'm not a huge fan of free verse, and I don't consider a volume or book of poetry to have ever been fully "read".

    I really enjoyed Carolyn's autobiography Surprised by Oxford and this collection of poetry from her did not disappoint. She has the art of seeing not only what appears to be but also what is. From "White Silence" come these words "the holiness of it all/ so loud around me/ that it can only settle into a/ silence unspeakably profound."

    I received this book free from the author through Facebook after an open exchange for a review "swap" . I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising] Home Going is a poetry compilation by Dr. Carolyn Weber from Canada. I make this disclosure because I understand the waiting and the expectation of seasonal change that happens near and around Lake Ontario as I live on the southern side of the same lake. Dr. Weber's poetry is very personal and very spiritual, about grief and loss and expectation. It is also about celebrating little things like hands, and seeds, and chipmunks and greedy squirrels. And weather in expectation of change, of the mystical in the everyday, and mourning the loss of childhod innocence. In fact, she speaks directly to that in the preface:" Poetry is where we mourn the dessicration and ache to celebrate the everyday; where we mark tragedy and turn to hope,and where we give voice to the silenced in a busy, loud world. It is the primary vessel, I believe, for serendipity, and an apt nesting place for grace." Weber is a sincere lover of the numinous, and for that alone, I celebrate her work.

    Once again, Carolyn’s writing makes you smile, ponder, wonder and pray. Themes of seasons and nature are prominent throughout this collection of poetry and remind you that observing a squirrel outside your kitchen window while drinking a cup of coffee can be much more than just that. While anyone will enjoy the references to nature, being a fellow Canadian, I appreciated the local-ness of these poems, also knowing these same trees and animals.

While anyone will enjoy the references to nature, being a fellow Canadian, I appreciated the local-ness of these poems, also knowing these same trees and animals. Even after one reading, certain lines - artfully crafted and sensitively written - have stuck in my head. Like “a prince in waiting” or “an ark of one” or how about this one - “my life blurs all verb”? Reading these poems feels like a chance to slow down and breathe, a definite Sabbath. It’s a beautiful gift of words - thank you, Carolyn!

    I had great expectations of 'Going Home' having been previously inspired by Carolyn Weber's 'Surprised by Oxford' and 'Holy is the Day'. Blending two of her previously published poetry works (before only available as ebooks) with plenty of new material, it explores the feelings unearthed by a return home after a prolonged absence. 'Going Home' looks at old memories and places afresh with the added dimension that self discovery brings. It is a sensitive and reflective work. I recommend it.
