At Last Light by B. Chelsea Adams


At Last Light
celebrates so much–the beauty of age and love, of jazz and nature, of waltzing down a country road. No wonder Chelsea Adams claims she “owned” by words. They are as rich and “vibrant” here as an autumn red maple that “shatters the afternoon.

–Jim Minick author of Blueberry Years: a Memoir of Farm and Family, Winner of the SIBA Book of the Year


At Last Light invites the reader into a sensual delight in the world; soles of the feet, “no trowel,” first kiss affair with living. The world is rough, children are rough, but “yes” is the only way to engage the world. The reader is rewarded by falling into earth with the last token of intimacy: a strand of hair entangled in a spider’s web.

–Mary Haines North, Tic Toc Cafe, winner of the Virginia Poetry Prize 1982

Rating: *****  [5 of 5 Stars!]


The poems of Chelsea Adams, quiet and meditative, express moments of personal insight that not only reveal day by day wonders of the natural world but also, like music, help to heal the scars that accrue from this often difficult life we lead.

–Richard H. W. Dillard, poet, novelist, and scholar, whose latest book is What is Owed the Dead
