For more information: dzieroth(at)telus.netThe Narrow Room is a set of poems connected to Ireland. They include memories, personal sadnesses and joys. They speak to how experience is shaped not only by personal memory but also by those of others now gone, who have never really left, since they are still heard, and felt, as present.
by Jeremy Harman
Okanagan Galilee is a selection from a series of poems about the Okanagan valley of British Columbia. For the poet, the Okanagan is both geography and place of consciousness, one of the most endangered ecosystems in Canada and the site of rampant development, yet a place of incredible beauty and spiritual power. In these poems, the author is trying to understand the place she shares with other beings, and why we are so complicit in the destruction of our homes.

How to Beat the Heat in Bodrum presents three poems from a lengthy new series on Turkey. Like the series as a whole, the words of these excursionary poems take us into moments of geographic and cultural engagement characterized by wonder, otherness and at-homeness, these moments deepened through the lens of reverie.
