Creatives Must Express In Order To Feel Alive

I know the tap on your shoulder, the feeling something is missing, the need to give more to your work, the blocks which frustrate, the desire to expand, and the depth you wish you could reach.

"There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”  ~ Martha Graham

Books of Poetry by Cari Griffo

Sheltered Front Cover Only.jpg

Sheltered and Before The Contagious

Cari Griffo’s second book of poetry is a collection of her poems sent to family and friends during the pandemic while sheltered. With a compassionate compass she explores the meaning of home while unearthing love no matter how hidden. The second section spans the past couple of decades with work she performed to live audiences, often in gritty caws, caw cawing a language which both releases us to hear our own breath and conjoins us to listen.


A feast of life-affirming poems about rain and drought, love and loss, sweet peaches and artichokes, family relations, mountains, passion and simple human truths...This collection contains Cari Griffo's most requested performance pieces. They are sometimes ambrosial, sometimes tart, often funny, and always succulent.
