Description
This collection is Mark Widrlechner’s fourth major compilation of poems and images, with verses from ten of his eleven Sun Series chapbooks created between January 2016 and January 2018, along with recent photos contemplating the intricacies of pine bark. As noted in his introduction, that series began when his life was filled with joyous love and a wonderful new home in New Mexico. At that point, his relationship with the Wolf Spirit was strong. A darker tone became increasingly clear in the poems that emerged as the seasons turned and relationships changed, to the degree that, after Sun Series #11, the following chapbook: “Is This the Stuff of the Fourth Dream?” initiated the poet’s new Moon Series. He also finally realized that the Wolf Spirit was no longer a major presence in his life, a shift that had likely been underway for quite some time. That recognition inspired the book’s namesake poem (found in Sun Series #11).
