Queen of Earth, Queen of Sky

This collection of 54 tanka by Leslie is now available on amazon. Doing in brief, sharp language what a much longer volume of prose might do, Leslie recalls the freshness of first discoveries, the imagination of two young girls with the woods as their playground, the desolation of rural Kansas, and the loss of a younger brother. The collection includes works published previously in Atlas Poetica, LYNX, and Ribbons as well as a previously unpublished sequence set on a Kansas farm. http://www.amazon.com/Queen-Earth-Sky-modern-poetry/dp/1484933680
