    There is a moment during sunrise or sunset when the usual motion of the day gives way to something extraordinary. Following the curvature of the earth, light bends and refracts to give a green flash as the sun rises or dips at the horizon. "When the Sun Turns Green" embraces moments like these, celebrating the points at which the everyday intersects with magic. Jane McKie casts her unique vision on subjects as diverse as ultrasounds and ley lines, wind farms and grandmothers, fighting hares and water monsters, sculptures and Sussex dialect words, observing the interactions of the natural and mythic worlds around us with verve and lyrical precision. Imaginative, poised and always surprising, the poems of Jane McKie's second collection confirm her as one of Britain's most exciting emerging poets.
