SHE HAS ARRIVED!
This little book of 28 poems was written in the early days of the pandemic. Late at night, before drifting to sleep, I would pull out my iPad and out these 18-line darlings would emerge. I had never written poems in the third person, but it felt completely natural to turn over the pen to the "She" who would express her innermost dreams, fears, memories and wisdom, as she navigated the everyday experiences of life during a pandemic.
Chosen as the winner of the 2020 Tebot Bach Clockwise Chapbook Contest, here are a couple of short notes on what you'll find inside:
As in the seasons of a woman's life, the quotidian world and the world of mystery change places, pause for us to marvel, then change back again.
One of the things I love about these poems is that they confront
the dark and the light of our lives.
These compact lines turn the facts of the pandemic everyday, the small battles of mundane chores, into sensual impressions that pique like cayenne on the tongue.
