Praise for Bird Cherry

“Incredible imagery and metaphors with such sparseness – the space as important as the ink.”

“Thoughtful, sad, and graceful in its strength; the lines sing.

“carefully crafted, deeply meaningful, poems that will stay with me for a long time to come”

– Edwin Morgan Poetry Award judges
