In this moving second collection of her poems, Linda Recco O'Connell writes about everyday realities and raw emotions; most importantly, family, friendships, love, death, and grief. Whether she is addressing her late parents, her sons, husband, grandchildren, or her beloved dog, her poems resonate with keen perceptions and vivid memories. From eating a grapefruit to recalling her first kiss, O'Connell's grasp of the sensuality of life in all its forms brings a sweet ache of recognition to the reader. Sun Sinking Down Like Honey is a journey into the life and mind of a poet for whom even the smallest details of our existence can be spun into words full of emotional truth.
