Whistle for Jellyfish
by Field Stone Poets
These poems are patient and wise. They invite, rather than alert, accost, or besiege. Their words, chosen for their quiet particularity, communicate rather than display. From the shared concerns emerges a shared sensibility, a voice that is accessible and gentle yet immediate. Here is a book that is a conversation, not one that we overhear, but one that includes us.
From the Foreword by Stephanie Bolster, Winner of the Governor General's Award

GOING NOWHERE, by Sylvia Adams
On mornings when the mist on the river is old and vulnerable
and what you remember and what you weep for
And suddenly our stories are telling us
Time’s run out, left us grieving for all those moments we thought
or wake, having dreamed it’s done and done as always –
(from Whistle for Jellyfish)
