Falling Lessons: Erasure One – Motionpoem

“My father steps into a field of lost
sensation, sunflowers, a yellow star”

“Blood, Sparrows and Sparrows” – Book Trailer

This is both beautiful and profoundly disturbing…and perhaps more importantly, a template for poets on how to frame and market their work. Trailer for Eugenia Leigh’s poetry collection “Blood, Sparrows, and Sparrows.”
