Praise For Time Capsules…
". . . encompasses eloquence and sense, memory and implication. These skillful poems give us much to admire, and even more to taste, to see. Here, the faraway is as local as chokecherries, as the calls of the catbird and turtle dove, as walking a dog through Possum Town, as a long cup of coffee at the Czech Inn of Spillville, Iowa. . . a complete pleasure."—Angela Ball
"These poems . . . take us on journeys both exterior and interior, where a meditation on something as small as the sprouting of an iris or as large as rivers and prairies reveals the emotional life that hovers beneath the brilliant surface."—John Bensko
". . . In a flower’s ‘calm green leaves,’ in a catbird’s ‘elusive, alluring’ presence, and in scores of manifestations, Kendall Dunkelberg discovers ‘a silver sanctuary where we can rest. . . .’"—Richard Lyons
