With Robin's memories of her husband and their love of the lowcountry landscapes, she transitioned from grieving what she had lost, to treasuring what she had had, a purposeful choice to travel toward Where Green Meets Blue, the metaphorical places in our lives we choose to move forward and engage in possibility. Fellow lowcountry poet Miho Kinnas says, "'Where Green Meets Blue' continues Elizabeth Robin's lyric inquiry into loss, and the struggle to maintain equilibrium. The title is taken from 'Whereafter, ' the poem searching a resting place for grief and longing: 'where green meets blue/ i remember, he loved that view.' In the aftermath of the catastrophic hurricane Matthew, the poet observes the dismantled pines and tells: 'i'm left with the stump/lifeless, flat, unmoved.' She doesn't end there, but continues: 'oversized hands/wise eyes/and a rumbling humor.'" Robin's poems revere her adopted lowcountry vistas, explore the journey to love and lose, the need to exercise social justice, and to treasure those foibles that make us human.
