About the Book

Invisible borders, personal boundaries, and social justice are among the themes intertwining with richly drawn images from the natural world as birds take wing, feathers scattter, and moonflowers bloom. Poems of identity, like "Ethnopoetics," consider society's need to label and classify according to perceived appearances, while feminist poems like "Pretty Woman" offer insights into a contemporary female experience. Family origins are visited in works including "Family Recipe" and "Ancestral Sestina," where poetic form is explord, as well.
