Intimate and elemental, rooted in earth, sky and a mystic wisdom, the poems in James Scott Smith’s Water, Rocks and Trees are “hymns of / becoming.” Each is the “old soul” of the book’s first poem, the work of a gracious and trusty guide, observant, nimble, never didactic, ever an acolyte of the infinite. –Catherine Abbey Hodges, author of Instead of Sadness
