Author and very long time friend, Karen Luke Jackson, has launched her second poetry book!!! Here's a blurb from the back cover that I grabbed to entice you to check out
THE VIEW EVER CHANGING.
"Wiregrass Georgia was holy land,” Karen Luke Jackson writes in her expansive collection, but these poems are not naïve homage. Familiar roadsides where the poet “foraged plums and blackberries” are cleared by chain gangs, and favorite stores are lost to the attrition of time and profit. In vivid poems that are both tribute and challenge, Jackson recalls caring for aging parents, honors powerful women who influenced her, and embraces life’s keen ambivalences. As the title affirms, The View Ever Changing traces a poet’s awakening, transition, reconciliation, and appreciation in a lovely and honest evocation of a beloved place and people." Source Amazon
