Birdy Poetry Prize - NOW OPEN + 2022 Winner Available for Preorder!


Cupping Our Palms 

by Jonathan Greenhause

2022 Birdy Poetry Prize Winner

Cupping Our Palms explores the mysteries of life and elusiveness of answers to life’s questions. The narrators of these poems grow and change—choosing what to hold on to and what to let go—as mere human animals and as greater spiritual vessels. Winner of the 2022 Birdy Poetry Prize, by Meadowlark Press.
