Alexandra Fossinger has the delicacy of insight given only to a few, a seer’s true gift.

"Recount and Prophecy" by Alexandra Fossinger

This is one of those remarkable poetry collections in which every poem is a shift in the kaleidoscope of the author’s visionary intent.

You may also be as swiftly and surely brought toward that reflective state as I was, the one in which we ask how may we better fulfil our given purpose? Alexandra is the kind of poet whose words challenge and change your state of being even as you read them.

If you have the courage to open to a deeper human awareness Recount and Prophecy is for you. You will not read far into this volume before you find your inner being transformed by this poet’s presence. I found true kinship in this work.
