New Shoots 17

17This volume is bursting with reflection, drawing a lot of inspiration of nature to go inward. “round midnight” is a poem dedicated to legendary jazz musician Miles Davis. “Jo’s Garden” is a loving recollection of a grandmother through the letters and objects she left behind. The Spanish village devastated by Civil War bombing becomes the subject in Guernica. The speaker uses their time away from the city to reflect on their life and relationships in “A Landscape.” “Honey Bees” inhale “the breath of heritage” as the speaker walks through a busy, crowded market.
