Sam’s Latest Release—Over a hundred pages of his poetry!
In “Converging Waters” Sam Love makes merging rivers a metaphor for the power of poetry to provide new insights into our culture. Through the poems you can share how his focus on a single object can reveal how the natural world and society are interconnected. For example in “Blueberry Mourning” we contemplate the journey of the fruit over two thousand miles to our cereal bowl. Or have some fun with fad diets as the cook struggles to prepare a holiday feast. You may even find yourself grinning at the plight of a good ol’ boy as he attempts to train his wife’s poodle to retrieve.
