"Not a book to race through but rather one to savor, Ron Searls’ Trees of Life and Shade includes both formal and free verse poems about trees, yes, but also poems about the Internet, volcanoes, cancer and T-cell counts, a Chinese pillow, Chopin, a dreaming cello, a puppet like a poem, myth, indeed the whole wild cosmos spinning with ants and termites to stars and planets. The collection is music in both subject and sound. 'Holographic cities pulse on the skins of brown onions.' I think of Baudelaire or maybe Walt Whitman on a cosmic scale." 

-Elizabeth Bodien, author of Blood, Metal, Fiber, Rock and Oblique Music: A Book of Hours, and the forthcoming Journeys with Fortune
