This collection of poems by Canadian poet April Bulmer explores belief in reincarnation, with relation to her own personal experiences. In the book’s Introduction she writes:
     “For years I have had fleeting insights into past lives. In these visions I am a very old and      mostly female soul … I believe we travel in groups, returning again and again to meet the same souls in new contexts and roles.”
 
The sub-title of this collection is “a jolt from the comfortable edges of spiritual inertia.”
 
Her poem “Schizophrenia” includes the key to the book’s theme:
          “Lord I am born / again and again / I await the blood / of your coming.”
