Birds Are Calling, Elov! Elov!  poems by Roberta Visser,  illustrated by Rachel Halper

These poems let you explore what it means to belong. In this book, Roberta Visser speaks to her new grandson, Ezra, meditating on meaning, belonging, and uncertainties of faith. At times she asks about the mystical, and at others tells him playful stories. Interwoven are poems reflecting on nature, the unknowable path he will take and the legacy of her parents who prepared for her family’s visits and welcomed her children as if with their breath … that Ezra, is the dust of stars, implanted in code, and passed from generation to generation not so much out of need, but out of desire.

Robert Visser will be reading at the Keene Toadstool on November 6th at 2:00 p.m., and at Congregation Ahavas Achim, 84 Hastings Avenue in Keene on November 13th at 3:00 p.m.
