Hopeful, passionate, and full of sharp discoveries about the dangers of the world, Fire on a Circle is an exploration of the fires we traverse to become our true selves. Written in free verse, verse monologue, and ancient Nordic formats, these poems dig for the roots of the spirit through exploration of survival, self-discovery, and a passion for connection to the author's ancestors and landscape. Grounded in years of poetic and runic studies, Ward weaves the mothers of her family, the struggles against addiction, and pagan practice throughout this debut poetry collection.
