Poetry That Roots For You
Nature Divine: We, Sacred Things That Grow (2020)
is a symbolic tribute to the indigenous, unglamorous, and sometimes downright bitter “root work” we must undertake to discover our belonging within the divine order of all life. It is a prayer for re-connection.

Until we love, again, with
all that we are.
