Grief, joy, sorrow. Love, loss, healing: the highs and lows of the human soul. Marybeth Cohowicz draws upon personal emotions, and creatively marries them with nature metaphors and imagery while addressing the trials of life. Many orthodox writers would struggle with a full length book to reach the depths Marybeth can take a reader in just 26 poems. Her poetry is poignant, and this first publication will turn you inside out and show you what you're made of!

About the Author

Marybeth Cohowicz has had numerous haiku published in Haiku Journal and Three Line Poetry and was named "One of Poetry's Best Kept Secrets" by online publication Bunbury magazine. She has had five poems published in Poems from the Heron Clan V, an anthology published by Katherine James Books, 2018. For Marybeth, writing poetry began as a method of pain management to cope with emotions she otherwise felt unable to express. Her understanding of the human condition and ability to convey it in simple sincerity in her poetry has proven to be a great source of her own healing as well as for those who read it. She's a Marine Corps veteran currently residing in Michigan with her family, enjoys sketching, and is a photographer.
