ANNA MARIE SEWELL: Poetry – Water Flowing with Names

[S]he solemnly celebrates the struggle, often painful, often joyous, to nurture one’s children, protect one’s people, and be part of the renaissance of one’s culture. In “Knit” she writes of unravelling “knots between when we come into this world sacred / and sacred take our leave.”

Part II: Ringing Here and There by Brian Bartlett
