In his fourteenth book of poetry, Partake, Governor General’s Award winning poet Robert Hilles writes frankly about the death of his younger brother from cancer. He travels to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand to grieve and heal and through these poems we see East meeting West. Partake chronicles the power of family and the spiritual journey from loss to renewal.

I love the imagery of the spider! Amazing what the mind notices in the absence of what it desires.  Great poem!
