Tides: Poems: Life's Ebb and Flow
The poems in this poetry book embody a philosophical theme that, like the tides of the ocean, life is made up of opposing forces – ebbs and flows, ups and downs, highs and lows – and that each of these complement one another to make up a whole or cycle. Through the words of these poems may you feel the contrasting movements of the different “tides of life” – the courage and fears, the optimism and pessimism, the hope and despair— which we all feel as humans.

SPR REVIEW - Posted by: Cate Baum - August 29, 2014

"Sandra M. Haight's poetry collection "Tides" takes its inspiration from nature and the cycles of the seasons, and those emotions that tie usto the ground and the sky and everything in between. There is also a spiritual thread to these poems. 

Haight's poems are reminiscent of the work of Louise Bogan and invoke the spirit of Hawthorne's "The Ocean" with their all-encompassing breath of sea air and tangled stars. Nature moves around the poet as she observes and philosophizes. Haight ponders the death of her mother, a beloved cat and the eponymous poem "Tides" compares us to the ebb and flow of the waves,

         We all are oceans courting with life's beach -- 

         Both brave and timid, learning as we reach.

Haight's book is gentle and musing, with no sharp turns or falls, making it a soothing read for those looking for some inspirational words on a quiet day outdoors, or maybe a port in a storm in a busy life."
