Shadowed with foretellings and premonitions, this collection of sometimes sombre, sometimes whimsical poems takes the reader on an odyssey whereby things bizarre, miraculous and bewildering can and often do happen. Where “Shellfish could fall from the skies, / summer and winter / congeal.” Whether drawing inspiration from urban life, the Tarot, atmospheric conditions, misadventure in Toronto, or hauntings in Scotland, Forecast presents a world permeated with the uncanny.
Today the ravine teems with life: / crows chase hawks, foxes hunt hares, / the dam overflows and something / shimmers between the trees. / Each blade of grass / aware of itself.
