Sam's New Poetry Book Awakening: Musings on Planetary Survival

Awakening: Musings on Planetary Survival is being released by England's Fly on the Wall Press in March of 2020. The poetry chapbook is a collection of environmental poems by Sam Love. The book has been nominated for England's prestigious Laurel Prize for a collection of eco and nature poems.

The subjects range from meditations on Mother Earth to the changes in migratory patterns caused by climate change. Far from a doom and gloom autopsy of the contemporary environmental crisis, Awakening has some fun with everything from imagining the craziness of shipping bottled water 6,000 miles to how bacteria evolving for a counterattack must be laughing at us who think we have dominion over them.

We are in the midst of a poetry renaissance! Weird times always seem to create a hunger for poets to craft poems that cut through the cultural haze with observations and messages that resonate with our higher calling. Think back to the Beats and their response to the culturally up tight 50's.
