A book cover of Spider with Wings by Cindy Rinne


Cindy Rinne’s, spider with wings, extends a tender myriad of verse “which sing a siren’(s) coaxing.” In this intimate mosaic, Rinne declares “I cannot promise to be consistent with your soul.” The poems gently navigate the reader through heartfelt insights; a sagacious study enriched with “maplines,.. Galilean moons, a house of antlers.” Moment by moment these unique, precise lyrics leave us asking: “how did it happen…” as we witness the birth of a harmonious language, “another kind of human” empathy.
–Maureen Alsop, Ph.D. NCSP School Psychologist

The Natural World locked antlers with Human Intervention, and they really went at it. And before the dust settled and a winner was announced, Rinne scrambled into the fray, collected the images, and collaged taut, spare poems from them.
-Amy Pickworth author of Bigfoot for Women

Cindy’s poetry is both lyrical and imaginative, and recalls the rhythmic cadences of nomadic cultures.
-K. Andrew Turner, Author, Editor, Creative Mentor
