A celebration of season, WE STAY A BRIEF TELLING begins with the moment just before winter... November... withdrawal. Unlike Vivaldi, who begins his celebration of season with the allegro movement of spring, Bucher crafts a slow entrance into the yearly cycle... adagio. Yet following Vivaldi, Bucher finds much music in the seasons, much poetry, and many harvests. In this fine collection, the author gives particular voice to the music found in seasonal transition.
While there is much seasonality to life, there is also much that falls between; moments hard to speak to that are neither one season nor the next. The collection begins with November Moment; a stark invitation to the reader to stand naked at the edge of these more difficult transitional moments of life. Bucher's poetry seeks to evoke a hard-edged courage; November courage, standing open to the ineluctable beauty of moments offering nothing but themselves.
