Promised Fruit: Poems

Alma Rosa Alvarez

This collection of poems reflects a vision of the world through the lens of the poet: noticing the small details of daily life that reflect larger truths. Themes include the power of nature to teach and inspire wonder, motherhood and parenting, issues of social and economic injustice, and the power of redemptive re-imagining of our own experiences. The poems are diverse, connected by a common thread of reflection on the power of choice. The collection is an invitation to respond to the complexities of life with love, compassion, and a commitment to truth.

Praise for this book

"Sensitive and surprising, these poems by Alma Rosa Alvarez and Michelle St. Romain Wilson invite us to take a closer look at our world and our connections to one another. With two very distinct voices, their writing seems to inform one another, making for a great collaboration. Whether considering aspects of motherhood, race, death, or nature, both poets write with clarity, a delight in life, and the sheer power of love."

Angela Decker, Splendid Catastrophe
