Meghan O’Hern’s. Rising from the Ashes, introduces a sophisticated collection of poems within a plethora of poetic language. This collection presents the common pursuit of happiness, tangled within a web of a fascination to exist, yet it explores the desire to let all things pass away. The work creates a cosmic connection between the reader and the poetry with delicately arranged diction.
