I think you’ll really enjoy this conversation on poetry and inspiration
I am sure you have all heard the buzz. I have a new poetry book out called ::organic::
The reception has been humbling. Here are a few reviews that I have received so far:
In addition to a wonderful reception for the book, I’ve been interviewed twice; once for an article which is not out yet, and once for a terrific podcast called Words from the River.
Laurie Nave did a fantastic job with the interview and I invite you to give it a listen:
The conversation includes poetry, the writing process, poets and poetry trends, the human experience, and our connection to the natural ecosystem. I hope that you will treat yourself today with a cup of tea and a listen to this deeply inspiring conversation.

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.
–Jean P. Moore, award-winning novelist and poet.
Her chapbook, Time’s Tyranny, was
nominated for the 2018 Massachusetts Book Award.
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.
