Description

Primal poetry with a pagan heart, Warp and Weft by Debbie Strange weaves tanka into short threads of three each, each triptych building into a larger sequence that tells the story of a poet with a raven's eye. Traversing the wilderness of the human heart, Strange's map is written with quills upon clouds. Each triptych is an incantation to accompany the moments of life and impregnate them with the fecund power of darkness. She is comfortable with night, with ravens, ashes, soil, pain, and the welling blood of an injured heart. But for all the ghosts that glide through her lines, the wind always rises upwards to become clouds and stars.

"Warp and Weft is Debbie Strange's Leaves of Grass. We have an amazing poet living amongst us. Let us sing her praises."-Alexis Rotella, author of Lip Prints, a Tanka Collection and Between Waves, haiku
