Wildfires and Atmospheric Memories (Out of Print)

Wildfires and Atmospheric Memories

by Mimi Ferebee

Ferebee’s lyric poetry communicates through imagery, sound, and a host of subtle poetic techniques. She allows us to see, to hear, to touch the world as she experiences it, yet her focus is not upon herself but on others, on the world around her, on specifics that, through her words, readers can understand to be universal feelings, conditions, puzzlements, joys.

Ferebee has published poetry in numerous journals, including Contemporary World Literature, Decanto Magazine (UK), Both Sides Now, Houston Literary Review, Obsidian: Literature of African Diaspora, Pirene's Fountain, Reverie: Midwest African American Literature, Bewildering Stories and Black Magnolias Literary Journal.
