Abstract

These poems offer reflection on different stages of grief through persistent questioning and re-examination. The natural world serves as a space for observation and reawakening of the senses, through both lyric and narrative modes. While speculation on the lost beloved is present, this collection gains energy primarily through meditations on the self and a curiosity about how we choose to interact. These poems challenge and complicate our understanding of happiness, solitude, and replenishment, discovering clarity without declaring a resolution.
