Bone Sense

By (author): Laurie Lynn Muirhead

These are narrative poems that resonate with the simplicity of rural life but evolve from the great traditions of Emerson, Thoreau, and have the emotional connections of the poetic works of Patrick Friesen and Glen Sorestad. The poems reflect how the lands, the climate, cattle, coyotes and weather unfold with circadian rhythm. Her language is straightforward and yet she creates fresh and useful metaphors to embody those mystical connections that are entrenched between her and the rural world she inhabits.
