      once I wrote

      of sailing out to sea

      on windswept waves

      now as a late tide falls

      my poems lie on the shore



      ~Kirsty Karkow

      "As in water poems.rivers, creeks, and the ocean permeate the imagery throughout much of the collection, providing a sense of connection and honest purpose," wrote George in her introduction to shorelines. "The poet is at one with her landscape and her recording of it is precise."

      "Kirsty Karkow has followed up her first book, water poems, with this elegiac masterpiece," wrote poet Dave Bacharach, judge of the 2006 TSA International Tanka Contest. "Each poem is a small, self-contained gem; yet together, they coalesce into a totality of feeling-shorelines is to be read and reread."

      Winfred Press editor Larry Kimmel noted, "the undertow of her inner-life that truly engages the reader. These are strong poems by a strong woman."
