‘Missing Pieces’ is a collection of poems tracing the story of love, loss and relationships, exploring moments, memories and reflections from early childhood to the present day.

Karen Mooney has come to poetry with great honesty and insightfulness. Her kaleidoscope of poems and haibun visit places often emotionally painful and challenging, but always with a delicacy of touch that assures a long-lasting and deep connection with the reader. From aching sadness (Prepared) ‘grave papers for a child not spoken of’, to the hopefulness of renewed life (Aubretia) ‘You spill out of pots and beds, seed waves of blue’, we are taken through a journey of memory where the language sings and the melody resonates long afterwards. These are poems to be re-read and treasured and I look forward to the ‘many pieces’ of a full collection.
