Knowing that Kate is an artist, I read her words as I see her artwork — clear and fun and profound. Most importantly, Kate's poetry is essential, in that the words reveal the essence of the person. It is so refreshing to know that poetry, in Kate's hands, is tangible, textured, moving, rhythmic and says something that needs to be heard! — Honey Novick

Kate Kitchen's poetry takes incidents from the immediate vicinity of an everyday world and highlights the vibrancy, the humour and the pathos. With the craft of a skilled weaver, Kate threads her words with subtle shadings of contrast to awaken our perceptions to the story lurking behind what might seem to be a prosaic exterior. We are constantly reminded that everything holds its wonder and mystery. — Joan Sutcliffe

Informed by her photographer's eye and her painter's palette, Kate's poems unveil a world in which tenderness and mystery pierce through every day, and call us to see anew what we believed we had already seen. These poems spring from a rich life, abundant in creativity, curiosity and fearlessness, and lived by an artist whose words equally spur outbursts of laughter as they might sudden tears. A beautiful collection. — Lisa Schmidt

About the Author:

Kate Kitchen is a poet and visual artist. She is also a clinical social worker and mindfulness teacher. She has lived in Toronto for twenty years and in Ohio before that. For Kate, these poems, like meditation, come from a mixture of personal experiences, memories, deeply held values, and always the awareness of and hope for interconnectedness. She is deeply grateful for this opportunity to share them.
