Description - We Bed Down into Water by John Rybicki

John Rybicki offers up an unafraid set of poems in this charged book of verse. "We Bed Down into Water" is rich with imagery of family, love, illness, death, and, indeed, water, which seeps in throughout the pages: rivers, pools, rain, and tears. His moving stories, in both prose and verse, struggle to hang on to a vision of the world that can still allow benevolence, luck, and laughter. In this, the collection embodies a contradiction: it is a tender book of fury, a book of bleak hopefulness.Rybicki's work is steeped in challenge: the biological and spiritual challenge posed by his beloved's recurrent cancer or the daily challenges of an adopted child who could be, all too easily, lost. He spins these phenomenal struggles into a lyrical book that offers hope and awakens the reader into a new way of seeing.
