This is Kairos.

Kairos is the third volume in Heather Neff's trilogy of chapbooks, which includes The Paris Hours and Vespers. Neff explains: "I first encountered John Donne's Holy Sonnets as a child, and his thorny, irreverently reverent verse captured my soul. After publishing the first two volumes of this trilogy I decided to discipline my lawless spirit by writing poetry in established forms of verse."


This collection includes Neff's Holy Sonnets, Love Sonnets, and Solstice Sonnets--the author's ruminations on the interstices between life, death, the healing power of nature, and the sacred vitality of feminine wisdom. Rich and complex, Kairos captures concordant moments of creativity and constraint, contemplation and candor.
