Every Root a Branch (December 2014)
Elizabeth Rees - Author

Poems that express the wonder and challenge of being human in a conflicted world.

Because these are poems I’d like to emulate: poems whose questions and subtle declarations knit together planets and the past, the invisible and the seen, the living and the dead. In &l...(Read More)
