About the Book

In Birdsong Under the Wisdom Tree, Megan Chaskey follows the archetypal poet’s journey, interweaving a lifetime of poems, journal entries, and memoir. Through her deep intimacy with both the inner landscape of imagination and the eloquent worlds of nature and relationship, Megan’s musical voice evolves from her younger years in an artistic family through loss and renewal as a poet, woman, mother, and the beloved wife of fellow poet Scott Chaskey. Megan unites all the elements of her sensibility into a lyrical and profoundly spiritual mosaic. In a world that may try to draw us away from a heart-centered life, Birdsong Under the Wisdom Tree stands as a reminder to live our lives from a place of love.
