HOMECOMING by Ben Onachila from Brevard, North Carolina, is a collection of twenty poems, eleven of which were previously published in journals such as: Restoring Connections, Inkspot, and Mountain Gazette. Many of these poems explore the significance of nature, our sometimes tumultuous relationship with it, and the lessons it can teach.

Washington Valley of New Hampshire, intent on rock climbing and hiking. Eight years later, he followed a vision to Bisbee in Southeast Arizona. After nine years, he again followed his inner wisdom to Western North Carolina and the town of Brevard where he has lived the last ten years. He calls himself an ‘artist of life,’ with each place he has lived being a canvas upon which to paint anew.


Homecoming is available for $10 from The Orchard Street Press, P.O. Box 280, Gates Mills, Ohio, 44040
