POETRY / Canadian / General
The past infuses the present in the poems gathered in this collection. Painting a transformative Southeast wind helps restore a culture to a decimated people. Everyday events trigger a yearning for love from those already departed. A goldfish experiences poetry for the first time, again. An arduous trek through the Peruvian mountains leads to a stone that stops the sun. By turns ironic, comic, imagistic, experimental, these poems ask what?s next, and how we get there.

David Haskins is the prize-winning author of This House Is Condemned, Reclamation, and over 150 published writings. At the age of eight, Haskins emigrated from post-war Britain to Ontario. For 36 years, six as Department Head, he taught high school English. Recently widowed, he has two sons, and drives a blaze orange 1970 MGB. He resides in Grimsby, ON.

Haskins carries such tonal vacillations with a deliberate and practised voice, both in this poem and throughout the collection, his aptitude for literary craft offering an aesthetic equanimity that clearly marks these varied pieces as his own. Read Blood Rises if you want to be shown how fully a person can manifest their life in poetry after decades of discipline.
