Poetry collection a first for Kansas Notable Author
The next Meadowlark Books publication is a book of poetry by Cheryl Unruh called “Walking on Water.”
Both author and publisher share the same hometown: Emporia. Tracy Million Simmons’ publishing company, Meadowlark Books, produced the collection, which is available online at www.meadowlark-books.com, Amazon.com and soon at Ellen Plumb’s City Bookstore, 1101 Commercial St.
The poems in this book are basically scenes from everyday life.
“The topics of my poetry are similar to the topics of my columns and essays,” she said. “I write about the land and sky, seasons and weather, about my small-town childhood, about friends and family.
“And, like most poets, I write about death. With each loss we experience, I think our understanding of death grows, deepens. These can be very rich moments for us and are worth exploring.”
