KARLA K. MORTON. Constant State of Leaping. Paperback, 116 pages, 8.95. Texas Review Press.

This collection, Morton’s tenth, is a bold book of poetry delving into risks.  It’s the moving forward; the constant discovery of new things.  Using a combination of quotes, mythological images, and exquisite metaphors from nature, Morton delivers poems that describe the absolute urgency of giving one’s heart over to life, the burning drive to have faith in the world, the insistence that everything, in its own way, is holy.
