We remarked in a previous Poem of the Week installment on the visual power of John Steffler's poems, when we considered a sequence from his poem "Once" that reminded us of snapshots. "Mail from My Pregnant Daughter", another selection from Steffler's 2011 Griffin Poetry Prize shortlisted collection Lookout, has its own unique visual potency, aided by some specific images that are intriguing and unforgettable.

Paterson keeps within the succinct 14-line form to tell a story sadly familiar to people with companion animals: the circumstances of having to compassionately say farewell when a beloved pet's health is failing rapidly, and trying to convey love across the human-animal divide in those painful final moments.

Ulrikka S. Gernes' thoughts about how essential and fundamental poetry is informs her work. Let's take a look at those thoughts and let's apply them to the eponymous poem from the collection A Frayed Opus for Strings & Wind Instruments, originally composed in Danish by Gernes, translated into English by Canadian poet/translators Per Brask and Patrick Friesen.
