- 2018 INDIES Finalist
- Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)
A poignant collection of poems addressing grief, loss, tragedy and mourning. We are scarred with the truth that our “lost ones follow us” and, “what we think we are holding, actually holds us.” We are reminded that the body – as a core of all experience – is like a night blooming flower, or a bird, “the color of darkness trying to escape.” These poems are preoccupied with justice and reconciliation. They show justice as a kind of a vital force, like a “conduit of seed”.
