FrostCoverWebFrost of Spring Green

A Collection of Poetry

Karen Jean Matsko Hood’s writing is bold and honest. She communicates in a simple, direct way that is sure to captivate readers.  If you are not yet familiar with her work, you are in for a treat with Frost of Spring Green!

This volume of poetry can be read for pure enjoyment or as an insightful examination of our busy world.  You may read one of her poems, enjoy its breezy wittiness, and then revisit it months later to discover something altogether fresh and new.  This is what ultimately makes her poems lasting treasures: they reveal depth over time.  Each reading promises something new, an additional layer of meaning that will enrich your daily life.

Drawing from many of her poems already accepted for publication in international journals, Hood, as an emerging American poet and author, brings together unique verses in this, her first book of poetry.  Hood’s poems remind us to value our link with nature and the environment in daily living.  Her poetry voices outrage toward current social injustices, offers a voice for the downtrodden, and brings hope to the most hopeless of situations.  She is optimistic in her quest for dignity for all life, and brings visual impact to her themes of nature.  Frost of Spring Green will also be available in international bilingual editions.  A collection of poetry ideal for reading time and again, this book makes a great gift for friends and family members.
