Way to Blue Mountain
by Christine Morro
Coming in 2023
Way to Blue Mountain: Ecology of Creativity Honoring Wildness contains eight meditative offerings, poems that hold a lot of space for breath, contemplation and digestion. Each poem or stanza, or indeed, any single line my be taken as a singular node to contemplate, sit with, enjoy or inspire. This is a book that can be engaged with in a slow, devotional or meditative manner, and pairs well with forays and wanderings in the outdoors.
Christine Morro writes poetry and creates art informed by the anima of the natural world, inspired by the sacred in the ordinary, the flight of shorebirds and the just after. Enlarged by encounters with the more than human world she seeks to enter this opening through a weaving back into our eco mythological story — to live the question ‘how to belong to earth’. Her writing is an offering to readers in the form of prayers, poems, incantations. A reminder to keep pace with the earth, to be entrusted to her longing and to navigate uncertainty with attention and presence.
