Review quote

"Moorhead is a poet invested in finding fresh meaning in the quotidian--in bird language, weeds, the tides, cloud forms. In an age when acts of reflection and noticing can seem indulgent, her poems remind us they are vital. This is a worthy collection."

--Michael Metivier
poet, editor, musician

Mysteries of the natural world and music infuse this second collection "Survival Part 2: Trees, Birds, Ocean, Bees" from Marjorie Moorhead. Her poems ripple and radiate from the heart, exploring the human spirit, ruin and healing. She invites us to enter surprising places. Her words wake us up with their fine observations of patterns and miracles that can be found in a shell, a tree, birds, the ocean or a forest. Immersing yourself in these poems feels like forest bathing. Her honest, urgent and compassionate poems will inspire. They are a gift, worthy of reading over and over.
