These poems, threaded by the teachings of Buddha, examine loss—the death of a loved one, the longing for a child, the yearning for another place and time—and the suffering such attempts transpire, but ultimately the poems are an affirmation that to be born into human life is our greatest opportunity to transform loss and sorrow into awakening joy.

“Reading Cathy Song is like bathing with every window wide open. Her poems are awakenings--recognitions of spirit in simple gestures, reminders of the uncommon music in our common tongue--such that even the elegiac and cautionary become inexplicably pleasing. In these beautiful poems, the body of our language is truly felt in a fresh light.”
--Mark Cox

"These poems do not simply tell a story from the perspective of one but of many -- of the hopeless, rich, frivolous, and relentless. Recommended for academic and public libraries."
--Library Journal

"Cloud Moving Hands is Song's best work. More of the heart and mind and soul are integrated than ever. More finely seen differentiations arise. Deeper chords are struck. She moves more and more into the unknown. This book is a gift to her readers."
--Li-Young Lee
