Flower Map by Deborah Leipziger



Deborah Leipziger writes in the key of flower in the same way that Beethoven composes in the key of fate or Renoir paints in the key of dance. The poems themselves flower, regardless of subject; one feels drawn into the geography of their flowering and ours. Flower Map is more than just a chapbook, it is a handbook to a way of contemporary blossoming that only this voice, this soul-cartographer, could survey and gracefully, graciously provide.

–Wayne-Daniel Berard, Co-Founder/Co-Editor, Soul-Lit.com, a journal of spiritual poetry.


Enter this book, this Flower Map, through “the gates — a mosaic of longing” into a lush garden, alluring and sensual. Experience the “rupture, rapture.” Deborah Leipziger has invented new forms of intimacy.

–Judith Steinbergh, Author of Writing My Will


In Flower Map, the lines are drawn with ink contained in a heart that is filled with light, a transcendence rooted in a faith in beauty. These are the poems crafted while following the trail of love through explorations of our humanity. In this impressive first collection, Leipziger shows her faith in the delicate and vulnerable as enduring qualities in our lives.

–Afaa Michael Weaver, Simmons College, Author of The Plum Flower Dance


In Flower Map, Deborah Leipziger writes poems of desire and poems of maternal love with equal candor. She portrays intimate moments with the immediacy of a flower, making tangible the sights and scents that pervade our daily lives.

–Jennifer Barber, Editor of Salamander, Author of Given Away and Rigging the Wind
