Summary

An illustrated gift-book of poems about motherhood and caregiving. 
 
“Orna Ross harnesses language to recreate life's moments by creating a canvas where every word scintillates with depth and meaning.” AMAZON REVIEWER 
 
Circle of Life is the fourth book in the 12 Poems to Inspire series, a range of gift-books for festivals like Valentine’s Day and Christmas, as well as milestones we all experience, including loss and new beginnings. Circle of Life celebrates Mother’s Day—and caregiving all year round. 
 
These twelve poems celebrate the incredible privilege and emotional rollercoaster of caring for others, while encouraging us to rejoice in our gifts we receive from protecting those in our care. 
 
In accessible, sometimes conversational, language the poet draws from her own experience of motherhood, marriage and friendship, and the wisdom of philosophies that explain how we have all been mothered into being. And how we continue to be nurtured by Mother Earth and the creative spirit that animates all.
 
The poems in this collection are written to be reread often. Reflecting on their wisdom, the reader finds comfort in the tender but powerful nature of inspirational poetry, which itself offers the nurturing care that these poems celebrate.
 
Split into three sections: Beginnings, Leavings, and Returnings, each poem is spectacularly illustrated by pictures the poet co-created with the AI artist app, Dream.
 
All of this adds depth and resonance to this short book, making it a gift full of value and meaning, for oneself or another. 
 
A thoughtful gift for mothers on Mother’s Day—or anytime for any caregiver.
Available since: 08/26/2022.

    Poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work so compelling is 'Barwin’s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder and the shifting, often perplexing nature of consciousness. His Heisenbergian sensibility honed to a fine edge, the poems in this bright, bold and acutely visual book add a surreptitious intensity and wry maturity to Barwin’s trademark gifts for subtle humour, solemn delight, compassion and invention.
     
    'Between the freaky, funny filmmaker Guy Maddin and author Gary Barwin, Canada is producing some of the most innovative creative works of our time.' – Utne Reader

    Night Became Years is poetry in the sauntering tradition of the flâneur. Stefanik loafers his way over sacred geography and explores his own mixed heritage through the lexicon of Elizabethan canting language. Comparing the terminology of fifteenth-­century English beggar vernacular with a contemporary Canadian inner­-city worldview, the poems in Night Became Years unfold as separate entities while at the same time forming a larger narrative on the possibilities of poetry today and the nature of mixed­-blood identity.
