These narrative poems are coloured with both curiosity and nostalgia and framed in a personal montage. Sorestad’s free verse captures the flora and fauna, the natural rhythms and colour of Saskatchewan. Occasionally they are descriptions of urban and rural landscapes, other times they are evoked memories of people and places who have left marked imprints upon him. Celebrating the ordinary and seeing the mystery in all moments of life remains part of his poetic priority. The neighbourhood parks he walks in, the way the seasons change, how family life evolves, how parents think, and a wide array of how past events claim permanence in our lives — all are set to inviting narrative tones.
