I can scarcely wait till tomorrow

when a new life begins for me,

as it does each day,

as it does each day.

The Lesson Of Plums

MoonPath Press, 2020

Lois Parker Edstrom

Book CoverLucky readers of Lois Edstrom’s new collection will be treated to the poet’s exceptional skill in mixing the outer, visible world of nature, the inner, invisible world of the human spirit, all wrapped in a shawl of Divine light. Edstrom avers, “Truth is always a bit odd. How meaning / may be found in the midst of chaos if / we listen, open ourselves to the risk / of what we might find inside. And isn’t this / what art is all about?”

—Michael Escoubas
