My NEW (May 2019) book: Beauty. Salon. Art.

cover

Swallow the call note

Buy now from Desert Willow Press.  Hurry, before the print run finishes!

The first poem (Girl Child) in my book begins:

In the danger of a tsunami you found
tireless strength, a ship standing
against muscle, slaughter, desert,
a tree facing the wind of lava – …

I painted the cover “Swallow the Call Note” based on a line in the first of the Duino Elegies by Rainer Maria Rilke.  The line: And so I hold myself back and swallow the call-note of my dark sobbing.
