Jarring a Tiny Bird

A Collection of Poems

Authored by Dale L Baker

"Jarring A Tiny Bird" is the poetic sequel to Dale L. Baker's award-winning book "More Than I Could Ever Know: How I Survived Caregiving." The poems in this collection chronicle life's pleasures and traumas from a mature woman's point of view. The language is visual, often coquettish and playful, but always powerful, dealing with love, loss, healing, personal mortality and the sheer joy of writing.

"Jarring a Tiny Bird" opens with a dedication to one strong woman in Ms. Baker's life, her grandmother and ends with a poetic tribute to another, the teacher instrumental in Ms. Baker's development as a writer. The hummingbird theme alluded to in the title, strings together emotional highs and lows of caregiving and widowhood and comes to a surprising yet touching finish in a tongue-in-cheek memorial poem.

Ms. Baker's poems have appeared individually in magazines, on-line and in anthologies since 2005. "Jarring a Tiny Bird" is her first published poetry collection.
