Senator is back with the third in his trilogy of seaside poetry. Soft Landings Finale frames a panorama of the natural world that is both sweeping and yet intensely personal in scope. Senators deft pen draws creatures from their nesting places and follows them into their magnificent surroundings. We dive with cormorants and flit with minnows. We feel what it is like to be a duck bobbing in the marsh or a seal watching a ship. And yet this third volume is a departure from the first two Soft Landings books. Although still spending time among the gulls, waves, and clouds, here Senator takes a look inward, to the changing tides and sunny reflections of his own psyche, of growing older and sometimes wiser, sometimes not. Senators eye misses nothing and stares unblinking at the twilight of our days while still finding humor in everything he encounters, and comfort in loves old and new. These poems are to be savored in rich droplets on your tongue, and kept close to your heart.
