This is Nana Lampton's third book of poetry. It is part of the Accents Publishing Spalding Series, which features poetry chapbooks by graduates of the Spalding University MFA in writing program.

Nana Lampton has produced a lovely chapbook of nature poetry. With her vivid descriptions and lyrical rhythm pull you right into the poem. An excellent example of this is in her poem, “Rosa Multa Flora:”
Wild roses drape the fence in May,
blooming as they climb …
Also in Dark Energy:
Your inner light,
burning stars from midnight-black
eyelets shining through
One of my favorite poems is Sycamore:
… Hollowed out, its mottled tower leans
Over the river’s rapids and quiet pools.
These poems ring true and resonate the natural tones of the earth. Nana’s other works are: Snowy Owl Gathers in Her Trove and Moon with Sun in Her Eye .
