In these poems, Reichert has seemingly overcome many of the anxieties which infused his early poetry. There is release here in his immaculate and accomplished language. He has gone that step further, through the mirror and to the eye, of both himself and the storm. What he writes cannot be denied or discarded. It simply is, in the axiomatic way good poetry exists forever. Once can feel the delightful percussion of meaning's searching. It is not just reconciliation and overcoming, it is the peace of mind to advance along life's trail as a poet, as a reader, without surrendering the will to question and to make of every question a poem.
