Bushwhacking Home

“These poems trace the stages of a journey into wholeness and maturity of being. The collection includes poems rooted in physical locations (such as the book’s Part II, set near the poet’s home in Wichita Falls, Texas, or its Part IV, situated in a log cabin in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico), but they also ground themselves in spiritual locations that trace the journey’s arc and weigh the heft of its meaning. 

“Joy, sorrow, humor, love, fear, and death all come into play in the five sections of this collection, occasionally in surprising ways. Readers alert to the stages of the human condition in an individual’s life should appreciate this book, as well as lovers of the art and craft of poetry and anyone who is a spiritual seeker.”  —Ann McCutchan

Reviews

“One reason that we are attracted to poetry is the genre’s intensity of expression, the ability of a poet to pack a complex array of ideas and thoughts into a few short lines. There’s no doubt that this is an attribute of Lynn’s book, Bushwhacking Home.

 

“These new poems underscore her incessant sensitivity to—and awareness of—not only her

surroundings but herself as well. In today’s world of 24/7 noise, her quiet, nuanced voice and her insightful, thoughtful poetry are a welcome, if not soothing, a respite from our harried lives.” 
—Greg Giddings
