Poetry, Photos, and Videos

Interested in poetry about nature and the environment, love, and family? You can buy my new book, Intimacy with the Wind, poems inspired by off-the-grid living in a tiny, solar-powered houseboat. Other poems in the book are inspired by invasive plant species, family, love, and nature.

Here is the cover for the book:

"Living on a solar-powered houseboat as it moves up and down Lake Champlain is bound to make one intimate with the wind — its vagaries, energies, and comforts alike. But in Carla Schwartz's new collection of poems, there are also the winds that pass over and through the inner landscapes. There are, for instance, the winds that bring us together in love, and the winds that draw us apart in grief. Also, there is the chill wind of the harm that some may do to others, and there are the winds of determined resilience, the kind that carry the survivor to the shore. These finely crafted poems give us this poet's vivid sense of being in the world, as if we are with her breathing in what life has to offer, a good wind overhead, like a blessing." - Fred Marchant, author of Said Not Said (Graywolf Press, 2017)
