Celebrating Firsts: Excerpt from MoonStain, Meadowlark's First Published Book of Poetry

 I thought we'd continue the theme of "firsts" for our excerpts in January. It's fun to look back on these early projects and remember the excitement we felt at building something entirely new. Ronda Miller was the first poet to make the Meadowlark bookshelf, and with MoonStain we began developing our vision for showcasing poets and poetry. The cover art became a fine example of the type of collaborative project that would become the Meadowlark standard. And here's a secret you don't know. Starting with MoonStain, I attempted to color-coordinate my clothing with whatever book was being launched at all Meadowlark events. MoonStain colors are still among my favorites to wear.   

Without further ado, please enjoy this sample of poems from MoonStain, by Ronda Miller. (link goes to ISSUU where you can enjoy turning the pages of MoonStain, almost as good as a real book in your hands!)
