Happy February, Meadowlark readers!
Ah, the month of love. One of the greatest things about love is all its different types, colors, and tones. Yet, no matter what type of love it is, it enhances our life.
Today, we highlight the love of Jeff and Jerry, the characters brought to life by Meadowlark poet Kenneth Pobo. In Lilac and Sawdust, the 2021 Birdy Poetry Prize finalist collection, we learn about what it means to love a partner under the same roof, to love ourselves and all the things that make us who we are, and to have our hearts opened to loving more.
Here, get a taste for yourself in this video of the Lilac and Sawdust book launch, wherein Kenneth reads and discusses a selection of poems from the book and chats with the audience about life and literature!
