I’m proud to announce that my newest collection of poems, Refugia, has been published by Persian Pony Press of Portland, Oregon!
(With the supple and fantastic calligraphy cover art of Patrick Barber at BlackLetterHeart!)
It is a rare thing to run across a collection of poems that lands in exquisite equipoise between that which is said and that which is silent. The spaces between sing, whisper, weep. They declaim love for the imperfect and the impermanent. To experience Kristin Berger’s Refugia is to skip stones across a frozen river, is to lay one’s ear against the groaning ice.
―Wendy Willis, author of A Long Late Pledge

“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
