Following a near-death experience, poet Stanley Kunitz reflects on the intertwining of life and its similarity to the seasonal cycle of a garden. This book includes a variety of reflections on themes such as “turning the soil” and “the web of creation,” poetry, and stunning photographs by Marnie Crawford Samuelson. Readers will enjoy the wit and wisdom of Stanley Kunitz as he grapples with life’s questions. This book should find its way into every gardener’s library.
