Elizabeth Robin’s Where Green Meets Blue echoes and honors

her late husband, who loved the lowcountry landscapes, compelled 

by frequent sunny days to look skyward. “There’s something about

where the green meets the blue,” he would say, gazing at tall

treetops blending into sky. With that memory, Robin transitioned

from grieving what she had lost, to treasuring what she had had,

a purposeful choice to travel toward Where Green Meets Blue,

the metaphorical places in our lives we choose to move forward

and engage in possibility.

Silk Purses and Lemonade emerges from a comment that Robin “start seeing the glass as half full.” Turbulent months watching her brother fight and succumb to acute myeloid leukemia makes this difficult. A world callous to the challenges faced by refugees, a sensitive ecosystem, true democracy and human rights, teases at her ability to find hope. And yet, she does, in poems that mark a journey through a tangle of grief, loss, and witness. Here she offers a steadfast belief in human will, the integrity to shed pasts and persevere through that jungle.
