I’m beyond honoured to have one of my poems included in the new anthology from Broken Keys Publishing. It’s a volume of poems called Love and Catastrophé Poetré. It contains poems that arose from different tragedies and offers a way towards healing.
Here’s a bit about the book:
This collection of local Ottawa poets address the loves and losses during the catastrophes of 2020.
“There is so much of love in this collection, so much to love in the time of a pandemic, to abuse the phrase. In a period where we are bereft of touch and intimacy, love in all its forms encourages us to connect and, better yet, to hope. And, as much as love hurts in “Touch,” love always has the power to heal a very broken world.
“Love changes and changes us with it, as evidenced in this marvellous collection of poems that encompass so much in so little space.”
“This collection captures an outpouring of emotion from a year of catastrophe and loss, interwoven through the themes of wildfire, pandemic and hurricane. The poems are vignettes of sorrow, destruction, loneliness and separation, but also with glimmers of hope. For lovers of poignant poetry.”
