Robyn's third book has six sections: ‘Life in the flesh’, ‘Tangled there’, ‘Time-travelling’, 'Bevelled edges’, ‘Peopled place’, ‘The Great Way is not difficult.. ’
(Five Islands Press, 2001)
Themes are political, love with a younger man, traveling, spiritual awakening, and breast cancer.
Publisher Ron Pretty wrote: ‘ Rowland’s skill as a poet is to combine lilt with passion, musicality with social concern, clarity with depth. She has always had the ability to see the political in the personal, to see the world, not in a mustard seed, but in the space between two bodies, or the errant human cell. Fiery Waters fully deserved its success.’
