Bluewords Greening by Christine Stewart-Nunez

Bluewords Greening is a book about motherhood - love and family and fear and failure and mini ninjas. We observe a mother's bewildering experience with her son as the poems detail his diagnosis with a rare form of epilepsy and the "bluewords" that result from his aphasia. The speaker is in deep conversation with the son's frustrated and often surprisingly beautify lexicon; she's also in conversation with the work of contemporary visual arts and the craft of printmaking and the twelfth-century visionary, St. Hildegard. Stewart-Nunez's music and skilled syntax and stubborn insistence on the beauty of the world - even as the poems explore the heartbreak of recurrent miscarriage - keep the reader rapt ad grateful and illuminated.
