In this 32 poem chapbook, Kenneth Pobo digs into memory and nature, the pulse of seasonal growth, age, decay, and whispers of mortality.

Within these meditations on death, loss, and pain, we readers can find great comfort, too--gentle reminders that life also offers joy and beauty if only we seek and cultivate it. So read this book. Read this book. Read this book. I promise you this: You will not forget Ken Pobo's ending poem. But wait for it. Read and savor each preceding poem slowly. And when you arrive at the close, be forewarned: You will bow your head, perhaps even touch your hand to your heart, and you will be reminded why you--why all of us--must daily strive to love more, and better." - Molly Gaudry, author of We Take Me Apart and Desire: A Haunting (
