Jeanne Julian

   Jeanne Julian’s chapbook, Blossom and Loss, was published by Longleaf Press. Prairie Wolf Press Review, Poetry Quarterly, The Lascaux Prize 2016 Anthology, Kakalak, and other journals have included her poems. Her work also has won awards sponsored by The Comstock Review, Naugatuck River Review, The North Carolina Poetry Society, and the Asheville Writers’ Workshop. She lives on a creek in New Bern, NC, where she makes an effort to practice yoga when not distracted by tennis, gardening, and photography.

   These 21 poems reflect the seasons of our lives, combining lyrical observations of the natural world with reflections on the poignancy of mortality. According to poet David E. Poston, “Jeanne Julian has both divined and composed a perfectly imagined landscape of beautiful contraries presented in finely crafted, sonically sophisticated poems….The reader will be haunted by them.”
