Sometimes our poetic journey takes us through periods of loss. In many parts of Canada and the United States, the Emerald Ash Borers are destroying our ash trees. Such a shame!
“I should count the rings
such a large log, freshly cut
in this graveyard of ash trees”
–Debbie Okun Hill from a new work still in progress
