Praise for organic:
Christina Ward’s poetry is heavy with the music of nature. Soft, slow, beautiful, and strong, her verses take on the shape of the natural world around us, a world that many of us don’t take the time to see. Do yourself a favor and fall into her words. Let yourself be carried away.
– Zach Payne, poet, author of The Wrath and the Waves

Christina Ward’s organic heralds a new and vibrant poetic voice, one as distinctive as a bell, ringing truth in every poem of this remarkable collection. Divided into four sections, each addresses a different theme: “seeds,” of families; “soils,” of our vulnerable earth; “vines,” of the ties that bind—both nurturing and stifling; and “skies,” about the poetic imperative. In her final poem, “For the Eyes of God and Birds,” the poet tells us, “If tomorrow my words/get swallowed up in darkness/I will still, write a poem.” Believe her. This poet, honest and brave, will continue to ring her vibrant truth.

Christina Ward’s poetry can take mundane observations and transform them into larger life metaphors. She has a keen observation and knowledge of nature, expressed beautifully in much of her poetry. Interlaced with flights into historical fantasy on occasion, all of Christina’s poems are teachers in unique ways. I highly recommend organic for anyone with an interest in poetry, nature and the unfolding drama of life.
–Randy Shingler, poet, essayist and author of the poetry collection, Tranquil Freedom.
