Beware the poems from Theresa Wolfwood. They will enter you and take you places you may never have seen before: a bridge to the wild side, a bereaved mother’s heart, a kitchen sink in Mexico and so much more. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
CAROLYN POGUE, author of West Wind Calling
Theresa Wolfwood's poems bear witness to the course of human history in its hunger for war, violence and injustice. Her verses, rich in her ability to look inside the human heart, bring us in touch with the human story of the politically imprisoned, the persecuted and the unseen. Wolfwood's poems are deeply interconnected with the land, the seas and the air that we all inhabit, as her wisdom and passion to protect our precious planet comes through. Her lasting belief in the healing power of love touches the reader and offers us hope for a human society more at peace with itself."SUMEET GROVER, author of Signals & House
