“Sometimes there aren’t enough other worlds,” Katie Eberhart writes, and so we pay close attention to this one. We dry-scrub silver lichens off old barn walls in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. We consider in the last decades of our lives a granite tor’s gradual crumbling. We watch for trees blazed long ago, the trail marked ten feet high. Sensual and meditative, Katie Eberhart’s poems light our way.”
—Peggy Shumaker, author of Toucan Nest
The Palmer Arts Council is sponsoring “a conversation between poems and music” at Vagabond Blues in Palmer, Alaska, Saturday September 21, 2013 at 7:00 pm. Music by the Northern Aurora Flute Ensemble. I’ll be reading from my new chapbook “Unbound: Alaska Poems” published by Uttered Chaos Press.
In Unbound: Alaska Poems, the poems evoke places and historic moments such as the evidence left behind by former residents of the (Matanuska) Colony house we lived in for twenty-eight years as well as nature and seasons, hot springs, berry picking, root vegetables, ravens, and the magically technological room at the Museum of the North in Fairbanks that is called The Place Where You Go To Listen.
Is Nature Enough? and Still Life With Vegetables, two poems in Unbound: Alaska Poems appeared first, and can be read online, in the Elohi Gadugi Journal.
Other poems have appeared in Cirque Journal, Sand Journal (Berlin), and the Palmer (Alaska) Arts Council’s 2010 Anthology, Voices Between Mountains. Water Tower Tales was the featured poem at the Palmer Arts Council’s annual meeting in 2011.
