Poetry is more than wrangled and arranged words; poetry is an emotive and restorative experience.
This image-laden chapbook relays experiences that are honest, perceptive, revealing – in places raw, but always emotionally real.
Each time I climb the wall
empowerment spreads and fills
the space, each time the door closes
another trust seedling must grow.
Please water the seedling:
it will grow again.
-Tree of Trust, Chasing Rainbows, released 2017
