The Precariousness of Life according to Nature

Former magazine editor muses over her life through poetry

Chico, California – WEBWIRE

Through her poems, she ponders over her mistakes and her role in an ever-changing world.

Nature has an uncanny way of making meaning in people’s lives. Former magazine editor Dianne Butler does just that in her poetry collection, On the Wire.
The poetry collection revolves around the beauty of nature. Each poem is a vivid image of unspoiled grandeur that appeals to the reader’s senses—the smell of flowers, the cold breeze, the sight of the ocean. The book’s title is indicative of a wide-eyed bird perched on a suspended wire, taking its surroundings in.
The book also serves as Butler’s personal poetic journal, reflecting her affinity to nature. And like the bird in her book’s cover, her poems are observations of everything that has happened in her life. The book covers her life’s journey, from a young woman to a mature adult who has experienced both happiness and sadness. Through her poems, she ponders over her mistakes and her role in an ever-changing world. The book’s cover art is done by Butler herself.
Kirkus Reviews describes the book as a “slim volume of poems [that] explores the writer’s experience, using images and themes from nature,” and cites “Drops of Red” as one of the book’s more successful poems, where the images are specific yet surprising. While an independent journalist, Tamara Sellman, soothes herself with “poems about cranes, willow trees and the color red.”
