When the Colours Run

Lisa Shatzky

colours runPublished by Black Moss Press in 2015. When the Colours Run is a collection of 41 poems that speak to the human condition as well as the fragile state of the planet with a voice that is deeply personal, eclectic, and universally evocative. At time meditative and at times darkly humorous, the poems in this collection wrestle with the timeless questions each of us must walk with in some way throughout our lives: “who am I in this life?” and “what does it all mean?” Using the seasons of the earth in sometimes playful and often startling ways, as well as drawing on cycles of light and dark, the poems move from one season to the next.
