Hannah tells stories in her poems of her romance with God.  Yet these poems have a grit to them in the midst of this love for God.  She shares her vulnerability of her journey and this light and dark is evident in the words she uses. 

The title piece ‘Dawn after Curling’ is a narrative more than a poem, a story of a girl on a journey and a God who’s accompanying her. 

“God hitches her skirts, fastens her flying goggles, and ties a natty rose- coloured scarf about her head. There is work to be done.”

Following that opening is some beautiful poetry.  We’ve included 'Hope from the Shadows' here:

Sometimes the darkness

is so thick

we struggle to find home

amidst earth's noise.


God is silent and hope

flickers only dimly.

Into such a winter world

was born light


in Palestine: announced

to hillside vagrants

and wandering magicians.

In that light was hope


to overwhelm titans

and drown nightmare eons of pain.

And into the cave's empty shadows

shone blinding celestial joy.
