The Meaning of Barns, by Jari Thymian, published July 6, 2007
Praise for The Meaning of Barns:
“In clean spare lines and radiant details, these poems surprise and delight with scenes of a traditional country upbringing that lead to the spiritual inherent in the mundane, the poet never forgetting ‘how to climb.’ One reading is not enough.”
“Master carpenters can raise a shelter with joints so perfectly fitted no nails are necessary. Jari Thymian, in The Meaning of Barns, expertly fits word to word, poem to poem, so we find ourselves in a house ‘held together between ether/and green with mysteries.’ By turns lush and precise, these poems stand solid around the space within them. Enter and you’ll find stores of a unique and lyrical sustenance.”
