A Howl for the environment!  With soft echoes of Romantic Era philosophy, Ordinary Light approaches the Covid-19 pandemic and the climate crisis with grace, celebrating and normalizing the simplicity culturally required to move from excess consumerism to sustainability. Sharp takes readers through west coast natural settings, celebrating the movement from mindsets of consumption to the slower lives of previous generations as meaning is restored in Earth-friendly habits. Poems cascade as a chronicle of pandemic life, offering hope in uncertain times.  From where we are born to what we embrace, Ordinary Light calls world citizens to reverse climate damage and live within our ecological means with emphasis on the healing commitment provides. 

Rainforest In Russet  is Cynthia Sharp’s debut book of poetry.  It is filled with  brilliant imagery and tender moments etched against  the mystic backdrop of nature  and universal spirituality.  The poems move with an intrinsic motion of their own as waves over a parched desert.  There is a masterful eloquence at work here that relaxes the reader while at the same time urges the turning of the pages.  Sharp has honed her creative senses into a fine feathered brush to paint the beautiful word pictures that come alive on the pages of this debut book.  Sharp leaves us sated… yet wanting more.
