Crystal Day: one poem book no. 2

Canal Edge From Crystal Day

From Crystal Day

The images in “Crystal Day” display an arresting delicacy. A distant SUV becomes a smudge of magic, thanks to the halations of its headlights. A procession of newly leafed-out trees ascend a hill in such a way as to recall a life-affirming, arboreal version of the human participants in the Dance of Death at the end of Bergman’s “The Seventh Seal.” The first rays of sunrise are visible behind another row of trees. Or are they the final rays of sunset? The difference is immaterial, since what Jordahl seeks is the eternal.Mark Feeney, Boston Globe, April 22, 2014
