Overview

About Through Pine Shadows

In word play and word music, in narratives and lyrics, formal and free verse, Carol R. Sunde shares real and imaginary experiences and observations. She muses about stumbling and dancing through a life full of lessons, losses, gains; times of exaltation, despair, and in-betweens accompanied by peace or boredom, or many tears or much laughter-an ordinary life as unique as each person's existence.

Excerpt from the poem "Dear Ones"

Just be.

Diving ducks will dabble in shallow water.

Kestrels hover and drop straight down

slipping through the molecules.

Reflected in the eye of the owl,

is a great rose window of a cathedral.

Loons, known for their haunting wail,

wail songs that tumble through the air.

Try asking:

What wonders are these?

Why is there so much love in them-

hope, the thing with feathers?

About the Author

From her beginning, Carol R, Sunde loved words and poetry. She delighted in her mother's dramatic renditions of nursery rhymes and poems such as "Up the Airy Mountain." Raised in Forest City, a small Iowa town, Carol attended St. Olaf College. After graduating with a degree in English and Speech Education, she toured the US for over a year with the Bishop's Company, a drama-in-the-church repertoryorganization. After her marriage to a fellow actor ended, Carol found employment as a social worker in Los Angeles, eventually earning a Masters and a Doctorate in Social Work. When she retired from a Grays Harbor College counselor position, she plunged into a lifelong interest in poetry by completing a Certificate in Poetry from the University of Washington.Her poems have appeared in Third Wednesday, The Comstock Review, Passager, Raven Chronicles, Shark Reef, and elsewhere. One of her poems placed third in the 2023 Lakewold Garden Poetry Contest. Besides poetry, other top joys for Carol include yoga, bird and sky watching, travel, camping on Mt. Rainier. Carol lives a seven minute walk from the ocean in Westport, Washington. She feels lucky and privileged to be in the Pacific Northwest with its awesome people, forests, mountains, rivers, ocean, plains, volcanos, deserts, and, yes, rain.
