Before the Sun Rises
Before the Sun Rises is poetry of awakening and listening to the natural world at this turbulent time on our planet. Gwendolyn Morgan evokes a dreamtime threshold of climate change, global initiations, corvid and celestial convergences. She interweaves her observations of swans, deer and rabbits with morning tea and auto-immune disorders, tracking our personal and political realities in the context of the natural world with spiritual practices. She names seasonal migrations, loon feathers, breath. This collection of poems invites us to honor the messages of the earth as our ancestors call us to offer our gifts for the healing of ourselves and the world.
