Happiness is not a gift, and it is not a simple experience, according to Woodbury poet laureate Sandy Carlson, who has recently published a new collection of sonnets, Taking Time, that explores both the struggle for happiness and the nature of victory. These poems consider the complex interplay of the individual with place and time in the discovery of happiness.
Mother Tongue is a collection of sonnets that honors language and where it comes from. A mother tongue is a person’s first language. The language we speak first results from a confluence of time, place, and family. These poems continue my exploration of the question of what it means to be here, to be with each other, to understand ourselves as part of a family and a community rooted in history and living right here and now.
