Lift: Ghazals for C

JackPine Press, 2008

From JackPine Press:

Lift traces the transformative cycle of birth and death within a farm family unable to speak of loss. This series of twelve ghazals circles back on and then into itself, as the family comes to terms with what was taken and what remains: with a child’s sickness, the need for hope. Interspersed are hand-printed block prints capturing the isolated feeling of life on a prairie farm. Intentionally stark, they evoke a sense of loneliness, and serve to focus on the house as a stand-alone microcosm within which the world is falling apart.
