Sarah Whiteley, a talented poet and I’m happy to say, a good friend, has a new book of poems coming out soon. And she dropped by to give us a little sneak peek!
Here’s a note to you from Sarah….
My dear and talented friend Kathleen is graciously allowing me to sneak over into her space for a moment in order to let her fine readers know about my new chapbook, Wandering Wonderful.
From the moment I first started to read Kathleen’s work and to connect with her outside of The Course of Our Seasons, I just knew that we were kindred spirits. I love our similarities and equally love our differences and I’m hoping that just maybe you will find and love those same similarities and differences.
In any case, I hope that you will enjoy this sneak peak from Wandering Wonderful.
the sawara doesn’t give up its secrets –
you have to come back again
and again let your hands ask of it
the same questions
and maybe stop by sometimes to see if
the copper beech has something new to say
one day, I found the blue feathers
of a Steller’s jay lying under the cedar
likely the work of a hungry hawk,
though the wisps of bark were silent
on that question too
Wandering Wonderful will be released in May, but pre-orders are available now through Finishing Line Press here: https://www.finishinglinepress.com/product/wandering-wonderful-by-sarah-whiteley/
Thanks, Sarah, for sharing this exciting news with us! I can’t wait to have a copy of your book this spring.
