Phases by Erika Moss Gordon
Release date February 2nd
Erika Moss Gordon’s poetry opens the mystic door that transforms the events of daily life into moments of epiphany. We discover who we are, not in grand, award-winning actions, but in paying attention to how we relate, every day, to the world around us.
-Rex Weyler, Co-Founder, Greenpeace International and author of Greenpeace and Blood of the Land
Reading these poems, I find myself simultaneously wanting to applaud and to sit very, very still and let their wisdom do its quiet work. I thrill in these revelations—layers of knowing and unknowing, these dances with the mystery. This collection is very much driven by love, is a mirror to meet you wherever you are in your own journey of how to love the world, to love yourself.
-Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer, Colorado Western Slope Poet Laureate, The Miracle Already Happening, The Less I Hold
Simultaneously sensual and meditative, these poems honor the sense of the sacred in daily life. With awareness of one’s interiority mirrored in the external environment, Gordon explores the delights of the natural world, of love and the beauty of the human spirit.
A celebration of mystery, deeply mindful, in a modern mountain-west mode. The tight simplicity of Gordon’s lines are as unclouded as the Colorado sky. These poems allow frailty to become elegance, their inner resilience unfolding a potency rooted in place & moment. Skillful line-breaks imbue her work with a fixed-economy of words treasured by minimalist, rewarding the inquisitive reader with added meaning and shadow.
Cover features the mixed- media painting “Unfurl”, by Colorado artist Kellie Day. Check out her beautiful offerings at Kellie Day Art.
