Victoria: Book launch — Beth Kope, Average Height of Flight, at Planet Earth Poetry

March 13, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

AHF cover webBeth Kope will launch her new poetry collection, Average Height of Flight, at Planet Earth Poetry.

The poems in Average Height of Flight are founded in the landscape of coastal BC, built on the losses within the narrator’s life in counterpoint to her walks in the natural world.

In forests with her dog, along watersheds and hill climbs, Beth Kope goes off trail to find inspiration and time for meditation. She observes as the landscapes change with storms blowing through, absorbs the names of plants, finds sustained comfort whatever the season: crisp, clear days, rain is fine, or the snow that reveals the other creatures that share her routes.

Kope invites the reader to join her on these walks and meditations on grief. The metre of feet and heartbeat creates a cadence of solace, but lovingly follows the nose of a dog.
