Writing about life’s absurdities, Betsy Johnson-Miller infuses her lines with a winning sense of eros. In this beautifully crafted collection, she explores the fragile grace that is earned by finding a necessary voice in contrasts: mother/daughter, husband/wife, humor/sadness, faith/skepticism, the world of the flesh/the world of the spirit, and so much more.

Season’s End
by Betsy Johnson-Miller

—To translate the darkness that comes sooner now

We do not name the bees’
addiction, yet we all know

the way they crawl into whatever
will hold them when the flowers disappear.

Then they are glad for winter
because the cold in their bodies

is the only way to survive the yellow,
the pink, the red disappearance of time

when tongues were sweet enough to ache
and bodies tight enough to fly.

As the last flowers close, the gardener says
“Let’s pick the long ones tonight,”

hoping they will bring grace
to a table where there are so many ways

to hurt someone you love.
Where saying goodbye

can sometimes be the only way
to live.
