Synopsis

Reflecting Edmonton's unique multicultural ambience, E. D. Blodgett wrote these poems in English and French, and had several translated into Cree, Michif, Chinese, and Ukranian. The powerful images and thoughtful metaphors in these short lyrics show readers the connections between nature, even within city limits, and the sublime, especially in the overwhelming silence we can sense outdoors--if we pay attention.
