New book of poems, Echolocation, coming soon!

“Take Flight” by Sarah Klein

“If we have forgotten that poetry is a call sent out into the world to rediscover and name our hearts, minds, and bodies, Kristin Berger’s beautiful new book of poems reminds us of poetry’s good and necessary work.” 

~ Annie Lighthart, author of Lantern and Iron String

New work in Plum Tree Tavern

Very nice to end the year with 2 new poems out this month in Plum Tree Tavern –  “Turning Off the News in the Sonoran Desert,” posted today, and “Mary Oliver Leaves the Back Door Open.”  Thank you, Russell Streur, for creating a home for these on his blog.

Peace and light to you in 2018, friends.
