Until Now: New Poems is the third book of poetry by musician/author Carrie Newcomer. The poems offer a balm for this anxious and exhausted age of pandemic and political upheaval. Her new poems explore the process of unraveling and reweaving the threads of our lives, and the possibility of transformation after a crisis. “We have all lived through a time of great unraveling,” Newcomer says. “Yet, with great disruption comes a possibility for change. We can’t just be healed; we must be transformed.” In this book Newcomer tells the universal human story of loss, resiliency, spiritual connection, and hope with the grace, compassion, and humor that characterizes her work, often turning to the natural world as a source for making sense in challenging times. Also available is a companion album of Carrie Newcomer’s music, also called Until Now.
