About the Book

The poems in this varied collection present a sensitive narrative of a poet’s reckoning with life. Her intimate observations on horses, nature, friendship, love, death, and loss span continents and time and are woven with a resonant, heart-centered awareness. This spiritual thread unites the collection, which begins with longer poems, followed by a section of haiku, and ending with brief sketches of the author’s life in Nepal at a time when the country was at war with itself. The book is enhanced by compelling photographs and the images that begin each section touch chords with the poems that follow.

About the Author
Suzy Conway

Suzy Conway fell for poetry when she was introduced to Shakespeare by a nun exhibiting uncharacteristic passion for it. Her poems were published in medical journals and newspapers during her career, and once retired, she devoted more time to writing. A former medical librarian, originally from Minnesota, she finished her career at Countway Library in Boston, only to restart it in Nepal in 2002, creating a medical library for Kathmandu University. She resided in Nepal for four years.

In Donegal, Ireland, where she lived in 2006, horses manifested before her in uncanny ways as she rode her bike hither and yon. Back in the states, Secret Halo trotted into her life, and how things shifted into the most demanding and mystical schoolroom is a poem yet to be penned. Rilke wrote: “The future enters into you long before you know it.” In retrospect, it’s right before your eyes.

Her brother once told her that she looked like her horse, which thrilled her. Now she endeavors to be like her horse: awake, aware, in the present moment.

Her book of haiku, Lights Along the Road, debuted in Kathmandu in 2005, co-authored with Janak Sapkota. She lives, rides, and writes in Corvallis, Oregon.
