From Ocean to Desert





























at the boundary

In this collection of poems, “memories are stored in the land: fresh turned loam/black dirt slick and broken/heaped in the scent/of yesterday’s story.” Sunderland’s use of the five senses delivers images bearing hope in every well crafted line, “We are trestle bridges suspended over memories–”  Judith Bader Jones, author of Delta Pearls, Moon Flowers on the Fence, and The Language of Small Rooms.
