Usually mails within 12 hours.; 8.9 x 6.1 x 0.5 inches; 119 pages; Library Journal Award-winning poet Uyematsu's talent shines in her third book of poems (after Nights of Fire, Nights of Rain), in which she touches on the feminine and natural cycles of life, her Japanese ancestry, lessons from teaching, and ascertaining the sacred in the ordinary. In "Balancing Stones, " a clear, crisp, beautiful stone pulled from the cold river reveals the sacred truth in the Zen mystique: "I have seen/ such harmony/ rooted in the impossible/ position of two stones' hearts/ no matter how oblique/ the angle. " Uyematsu graduated in mathematics from UCLA and also helped initiate their Asian American studies program. Currently, she is a public high school teacher of mathematics in Los Angeles. Her life clearly informs her work, as the unlikely elements of politics, mathematics, and poetry all come into play here harmoniously. Recommended for academic and metropolitan libraries. -April Davis, Oakton, VA Copyright 2005 Reed Book Description Amy Uyematsu is an award-winning poet who by day switches from right to left brain to teach algebra and geometry in public high school. The result of her poetry-math life is a fascinating, far-flung but surprisingly connected book that interlinks mathematics, poetry, politics and spirit. Stone Bow Prayer is a remarkable journey in which-as one poem suggests-"Geometry Gets Mixed Up with God and the Alphabet, " and the infinite and minute nurture one another. Amy Uyematsu is a sansei (third-generation Japanese American), author of two books of poetry and the recipient of the prestigious Nicholas Roerich Poetry Prize. She co-edited Roots: An Asian American Reader, one of the first anthologies in Asian American studies. She lives near Los Angeles.
