Overview

Lisa Martin-DeMoor's debut collection of poetry, One Crow Sorrow, is both fearless and vulnerable-an exploration of grief and loss that is rooted in life affirmation, in deep attention to the natural world.

From a tangle of snowflakes in Saskatchewan to cell masses like dislodged icebergs, the earth and body inform one another, their cycles of life entwined. The resulting poems explore grief as an extension of love, and mortality as an extension of living. Pain, she writes, is the opened bloom of beauty.

Reviews

"A powerful, evocative collection . . . Martin-DeMoor crafts images that are both familiar and startlingly fresh."

"A remarkable account of the complex relationship between grief and joy, disease and beauty, heartbreak and love. These are profoundly moving poems by a writer of immense talent."
