Weaving Lessons is a collection of twenty-six poems presented in various women’s voices. The arc of the poems begins in small town Midwest innocence and traces lives of women from girlhood to old age. Influences are drawn from real life in multiple generations. The natural world, the female body, and the complexities of identity are also present. While some poems were conceived in nonce and traditional forms, only one retains the original form; the remaining poems appear in free verse. The moves in this collection are designed to sing, whisper, and yell in varying degrees as the writer interacts with her birthright as a woman.
