Kirkus Starred Review, Firstborn:
"A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths."

Poetry Friday: Cratered Hope



Cratered Hope

Across the black hill,
a wisp of moon cracks charcoal
darkness and gleams hope.

Hi, Lorie Ann. I appreciate the poem and your photo. At a writing retreat last month, we saw the full moon with a *huge* halo of light -- hard to capture with a camera or even with words. Beautiful!

Was this the "mega moon" coming up last summer? I have some great shots of "Cratered Hope" rising, too!

Hope does RISE, doesn't it!!

I have a moon poem in this week's roundup too! I love how it can inspire such a huge spectrum of thoughts and forms and words - ah, the seductive moon.

The photo and poem are lovely, and what an evocative title. :)

Thanks for the sweet words! It was last summer, actually.

Hope does rise, by grace! And can't wait to see how the moon inspired you, Renee.

Thanks again!
