Desert Elegy, Finalist for New Women’s Voices

Desert Elegy–finalist for New Women’s Voices


Desert Elegy

Poems describing the harsh beauty of the Mojave Desert and its fragile inhabitants both animal and human.

Desert Elegy portrays the creatures that inhabit and depart from the desert:  an appaloosa colt, a favorite cat, a beloved father, an infant. In this world of the Mojave Desert,  Jones doesn’t turn away from despair, but she allows us to see new life emerging from loss.  Even those about to depart carry pockets full of seeds.

Tami Haaland, former Montana Poet Laureate,

Finalist for the New Women’s Voices Prize for Poetry.
