Item Description...
Earthshine is a book about a wife's illness and death from cancer and the aftermath of grief. It is, necessarily, painful. Yet David Young, is meditating on despair and the loss of love, has found the "day coming up again, the world enacting its own beginnings and everything moving in this earthshine." The clouds and mountains still glisten. The earth is "a crystal where light is sorted and stored," a "tiny beacon in the hurting dark."

But before new light is the dark, and David Young leads the way through the dark carefully, gently, in restrained yet penetrating words, from the shock of discovery ("the first death") to surgery, liver scans, the rude details of disease, the tightening circle of pain, the dwindling body, the spreading sorrow. Then, the search for light--at first there comes "an afterglow of love," then misery starts "to slip away" and a sky displays a blue radiance. "The tears that filled me up fill with light now."

More About David Young

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! DAVID YOUNG journeys from his front porch halfway across the globe and back to his Ohio home in the circuit marked by Foraging. His emphasis is on our mortality and survival; ghosts and mushrooms (hence the title) are central poetic images; wild mushrooms of an odd beauty--variegated, unpredictable, delicious, poisonous, hallucinogenic--taking their life from decay, recyclers of matter, rather as poets are. He sees nature as a haunted house, and as a presence whose meaning fascinates and eludes us. Some of his poems are spoken by ghosts, others addressed to ghosts--for example, the elegy for James Wright, which invites his spirit to return to his native Ohio.

David Young was born in 1936.
