Facing the blank page of the empty computer screen requires an unswerving belief in possibility, a steadfast assurance that something can and will come out of nothing.

As gradual as a cloud passing or a blossom opening, this is the story of a woman very slowly dying, accompanied by her husband and an astonishing number of offspring, from infants to young adults.

In his compelling new collection, David Huddle writes, "We think / we stand in the vivid color of here and now / and view the past as drab black and white, / whereas the truth is -- it's our future / that's the off-center, badly focused grayscale."
