Bellingham Poems

This collection of poems by a trio of resident poets is both distinctively
local and remarkably universal. Its evocations of attraction, love,
heartache, loss, hopes, and dreams—shared by people everywhere—
are set against easily recognizable backgrounds from Boulevard Park
to Fairhaven to Clayton Beach to our beloved Cascades. These poems
bear reading and rereading for those things common to locals as well as
those experiences we share in common with all humanity.

Wendell Berry said, “If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know
who you are.” This fine collection of poems is for people who believe
that knowing our home place is critical for knowing well ourselves
and our neighbors. Written by three distinct, connected voices, these
poems sing with the wind and rain, rivers and mountains of the Pacific
Northwest. Like salmon, they have a lot to teach us about the art of
homecoming. They share a common story that the abundance of place
and the generosity of people go together. It’s a good place to call home.

Whether it is a peek at Clayton Beach’s naked sun bathers or the
aroma of poached salmon and ancient stories found in Salish baskets,
Bellingham Poems gives the reader an intimate portrait from three
distinctly different poets who have lived for years with these local
images. Here are poems of special places and special people.
