Don Colburn's 5th poetry collection. Winner of the 2018 Cathy Smith Bowers Chapbook Contest. "I loved this book from the get-go," says final judge Cathy Bowers, a past Poet Laureate of North Carolina. "Who wants to read an entire book of poems about death? I'll take one any day -- if it is written by this author." In other advance praise, Oregon Poet Laureate Kim Stafford writes: "Don Colburn takes a vivid glimpse -- at an ancient tree, an artifact, a comment by a stranger -- and feeds it his attention, like water to a seed, so this glimpse may grow into a poem to gift us insight."
