Letters For Tallulah (2nd Edition)

This second edition of Letters for Tallulah is a collection of 52 poems, which hold yearnings of the spirit and poems as prayers that capture the experience of grief, of miscarriage and the unexpected loss of a child and the journey of inter-weaving that experience into the self and our shared collective journey.

These poems speak to nature’s infinite wisdom in patterning a pace to map the way forward in learning to grieve while joyously honoring life with intention and care.

“I feel transported to the river, listening to the geese, watching a tender blanket of snowflakes, feeling the tender ache of womanhood.” -M. Pacheco

“This volume of thoughtful, heartfelt poems will inspire you and make you dream again.” – Z. Lee

“I just floated away reading these poems on this cloudy morning while sipping my coffee in silence–taking in the beauty of the cows and geese and the sounds they make. It was so peaceful.” – Faith H.

Appalachian Lullabies

This 54-page self-published collection is comprised of 46 poems and one essay with cover art by Artist Jackie Rubino.

The poems are teachings from nature, weaving her infinite reminders to slow-in and listen. They are conversations and meditations on talking with the animals and ancestors that hold and pattern a way through the more than human world. A handful were published in a limited edition publication titled Soft With Me published in 2021, yet most were written in 2023 while studying writing and story as medicine. I hope these poems touch a space within you, to quiet in and listen.

“What a beautifully bound collection of poems- a salve this week with all the goings-on. Tiffany, your words are good medicine.” -Dawn B.
