"Judith Waller Carroll's Ordinary Splendor evokes the magic of everyday living with direct language as well as incisive metaphors and similes: 'the

heron's long neck pointed like a compass needle.' 'Such a fuss about the stars, ' writes Carroll, a poet who sees clearly the many miracles that are often

overlooked but who concludes that 'at the end, / this is what I will remember.' Imbued with insight and questions that celebrate a lifetime of experiences, these poems explore the ache of living with wide open eyes: 'Yes, I know. Somewhere, someone / is doing unspeakable things to another' but also with understanding that there is so much more."

-KB Ballentine, Edge of the Echo and The Light Tears Loose

"Judith Waller Carroll is a master of imagery. And of nailing a poem in the

last line."

-The Lascaux Review
