Green Horses on the Walls

[Cai verzi pe pereți]

poetry collection from Finishing Line Press

“Nothing prepared me for island life,” Cristina A. Bejan notes in a memorable poem of exile. The island of poetry has always been with her, a physical and spiritual island composed of people she loves or not, the dailiness of a lived and detailed life in her country of origin, the languages that express them. These poems infuse the English language with the pleasures of a world I loved surrendering to. She is a poet through and through, born that way, and generously ours now.
