The Place of Our Meeting by Donna Emerson
$19.99, www.finishinglinepress.com, Forthcoming Books
What does a poet see, when she goes away from the city of our moment in time?
Donna Emerson sees trees stand like pews and cornfields’ spirited congregation.
In this book, Emerson brings together different tonalities, writing both from the landscape of memory and the natural world of her beloved California, often bringing the two into the same poem, even the same stanza: “Remember when we listened / to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons? / Only one season here: / red summer hum.”
