Love Is A Place: A collection of poetry
by Arlene Sundquist Empie,
Pacific Northwest award-winnng author.
Arlene Sundquist Empie’s passion and life experience conjoin to create a powerful collection of poems that cast new light on love and place. Whether she’s observing the shenanigans of coyotes or the mating dance of Diamondback rattlesnakes, her careful descriptions and rich imagery give us renewed appreciation for the natural world and all its inhabitants. In poems that range from the Upper Sonoran desert to the shores of the Salish Sea, she reminds us to heed the call of Nature.
“Listen” she says. “Their songs are here. The beat goes on.“ Empie’s a trustworthy companion. Take her with you on your next trip. See if you, too, don’t begin to hear their songs.
