Earth, Grass, Trees and Stone

With eyes wide open to the world around her, Mary Anne Morefield explores hedgerows and pastures, the plants, animals and humans that inhabit an 18th century Pennsylvania farm. She broadens her search to the wider world of ideas, to other cultures, to Aleppo and the West Bank. She looks directly at Hurricane Sandy and sits beside death. She examines the region of widowhood, laces up her hiking boots to explore new territory in the flora, fauna and mountains of Arizona. There new colors catch her eyes, new sounds enchant her ears. The poems speak to living fully and deeply in the world.
