“Like a Mary Poppins”: Review by Nancy Wright

About the Author:

 

Sharon Webster is a writer and visual artist. Prior to Everyone Lives Here, her poems have appeared in seven poetry self-published chapbooks and in various journals. She has taught studio art at Community College of Vermont and worked with developmentally challenged adults at Home Base, Inc. for many years.  

Summary:

​

The poems in Everyone Lives Here create a world of varied, yet singular voices. Speaking of a treasured friend with Down Syndrome, a partner having surgery, or a tired cleaning lady, Webster looks for the common thread and finds: 

   Step after step

 is everyone’s name.

​

 Moving through the seasons, these poems and the evocative photos of Webster’s visual artwork that accompany them are sensuously alive and watchful, on the lookout for new ways to see — and say. 

​

A loaded baseball diamond lives inside everyone while a tiny reflection of grass in the window tells a long story 

to keep my heart 

afloat.
