© 2016 Wilma Rubens All rights reserved.
This is Wilma’s first collection of poetry. They are reflections on her journey away from her restrictive presbyterian beginnings, her profound love for the outdoors, and the unravelling of her emotional world as she mourns the deaths of her loved ones. Her poetry resonates with women seeking to come home to themselves as they walk the uncharted waters of the feminine towards their own unique handcrafted life.

Review by Weyman Chan,
"This powerful book by Wilma Rubens walks a tightrope between calvinist negativity and universal light, all the while "mingling with the fragrance of stargazer lilies." A direct line connects the author's childhood and family narrative to the "crackling undergrowth" of mother earth, and the ensuing conversation with her own vulnerability gathers courage from her Scottish forbears, allowing her, against all odds, to "savour the tranquility within." Hers is a unique and celebratory path, worth savouring in every poem."
"I am full of admiration for your ability with words, and imagery; with the honesty and courage for opening up memories and emotions for others to share and, in many cases, identify with. There are so many poems I could comment on, suffice to say I look forward to sharing your poems with others and will treasure this book. Thank you so much for the gift, personally inscribed." Averil Stewart, Head of Occupation Therapy, Edinburgh.
