Retrieving the Spirit

Kate Curry has taught writing at the college level and has contributed to many publications through articles, short stories and poetry. Her recent work appears regularly in The Hamilton County News as well as In the Sun, In the Snow and The Adirondack Express. She was a contributor for Mountain Moments, an anthology from the Indian Lake Writer's Group, of which she is a member. Kate is also a member of the Adirondack Center for Writing. She lives in the Central Adirondacks.

This book is dedicated in memory of my father David Granville Curry (1926-1988) who treated everyone he met with kindness and thoughtfulness and always showed peacefulness and a quiet dignity to the world and to my mother Orpha Jones Curry, who courageously shows a positive attitude and greets every new day with a smile, despite her own present health challenges and to all men and women who struggle with trauma, illness or disability each day.

From the book:


We decided to go for a little walk--
Spirit and me.

We got out of the car
and were in a meadow.

The sun was high
and the flowers
gave off the richest perfume.

My chest went up and down
in its own rhythm.

The friend and critic
can be one.

Spirit and I--
we talked until
the sun went down.

And it stayed outside
beside me throughout the night.

Retrieving the Spirit
