Those We Can No Longer See: New and Selected Poems by Bob Ross embarks on a profound journey where the mundane transforms into the mystical, and the echoes of personal trials resonate with universal truths. This anthology unfolds the complexities of human existence—dreams that pierce the veil of the night, losses that weigh heavily on the soul, and life’s simple moments that are, in truth, anything but simple. Experience the chilling solitude of “White,” where snow and silence conspire to create a landscape of introspection, and follow the poignant narrative of “The Grass Widow: Homesteading in Western Nebraska,” a saga of resilience and rebirth in the face Ross’s poetry invites readers to witness the stark beauty of existence through the lens of poetry. It’s a collection where the visceral and the ethereal meet, where the grit of reality is mirrored by the tenderness of hope. This collection is a testament to the enduring spirit of humanity, to the strength found in vulnerability, and to the incredible power of words to heal, to unite, and to find beauty in brokenness.
