Earth Resonance: Poems for a Viable Future

By Sam LovePublisher: The Poetry BoxISBN: 978-1-948461-86-3Genre: PoetryPrice: $16.00, paperback

Earth Resonance: Poems for a Viable Future is a collection of environmental poetry written by poet Sam Love. The accessible poems in Earth Resonance do not simply bemoan the state of melting glaciers, stranded polar bears, or sizzling temperatures, but instead give the reader an in-depth autopsy of our culture's footprint on the natural world with introspection and a dash of humor.

Sam Love is a writer living in New Bern. As a media producer, he specialized in helping groups tell their stories in innovative ways. He now spends his time writing poetry, teaching yoga, and restoring a historic house. Previously, his nonfiction articles appeared in major magazines including SmithsonianWashingtonian, and the Progressive.

His poetry has been published in numerous magazines and websites.


I generally find contemporary poetry pretentious, and opaque, but Sam Love’s poems are lucid and provocative. Love writes beautifully of environmental shame and hope.
