Subterranean Light
Poems by Susanne West

Subterranean Light; Poems by Susanne West“A good poet is someone who has plumbed the depths of human experience and somehow manages to bring back to the surface the gems found there. A GREAT poet is someone who strips themselves bare such that each poem manages to reach through the ethers and touch the reader, letting them know they are not alone in their own human experience. Such is this beautiful collection of poems from Susanne West. She explores death and loss without flinching, offers solace, hope and guidance, and reminds us always that, “Blessings arrive just when it seems impossible.” This is a book to turn to again and again and again, as one would turn towards the wisdom of a great teacher when most needed. Let the hard-earned wisdom of her deeply moving journey guide you towards the peace that surpasses all understanding.”

– Tina M. Benson, M.A., Author of “A Woman Unto Herself: A Different Kind of Love Story,” and “Soulwhisperings: Erotic and Devotional Love Poems for an Outer or Inner Beloved”

In the warm and wise voice of someone who has been there herself, Susanne West offers many effective ways to take care of yourself from the inside out. Her book – full of her own qualities of deep kindness and practical wisdom – is a gift from the heart both to caregivers and to those they help and love.”
