Island life carries on while a beautiful woman lies in a coma surrounded by friends and lovers.


 Thyme clings, high / and away from the grazing and scents / the air.

"These are understated poems grounded in imagism, snapshots of a life, where the poet speaks quietly to her reader with precision and insight." Armand Garnet Ruffo, author of Treaty#

"Spanning continents and decades, the poems in Field Guide to the Lost Flower of Crete bear witness to beauty, pain, and injustice alike. Meditative and musical, Schönmaier's verse renders the world in vivid, attentive language." Annick MacAskill, author of Murmurations
