Axis Mundi Poems by Karen Holmberg
Axis Mundi by Karen Holmberg weave nature, emotion, memory, and life into a book of experiences that leave the reader immersed in each moment and floating toward the next. Holmberg's delightful and enthralling prose draws connections that invigorate the senses. Holmberg's poems explore life from myriad angles breaking open the reader's natural resistance to see the ugly in the beautiful and the beautiful in the ugly. With metaphors that seem delightfully specific and yet somehow vague enough to drive the reader's imagination to new places as it conjures images of memories and slices of nostalgia, the poems in Axis Mundi bring the reader face-to-face with the inter-connectivity of the world.
