“To read Casting Shadows is to shed light on the loves, losses, secrets and sorrows of the examined life, much as Jung spoke of “finding the gold in shadows”. Through eulogy and introspection, David Terelinck honors the complexities of relationships to reveal “so many endings in this new beginning”. Compassionate and lyrical, these tanka speak of the pivotal moments that shape life on personal and universal levels. With skill and sensitivity Terelinck brings the past into the present with clear-sighted poems that engage the reader as both witness and participant.”–Carole MacRury, Secretary/Treasurer: Tanka Society of America (2006-2010).
Casting Shadows is available for $22 (includes postage within Australia) direct from the author. Contact David Terelinck at
