Getting Old published in Bluepepper

Dear Everyone: this week, the poet Justin Lowe published my poem Getting Old from my collection The Moon Is In The House in his wonderful BluePepper Poetry Magazine.  This poem has a lot to do with language, age, and our relationship to the earth.  It was written when I was forty-three, but now since I’m fifty-one I’m ‘bending toward the earth’ even more.  bluepepper.blogspot.com

Morning Poem 3/8/17

 

Morning hardening fluff filling tracks from

moonlight pressed

pressed with moonlight

moon-pressed light

press of moonlight

the song of silk that fills the skin of night

Code words of moon and wine

 

What did you dream last night I ask this president, this king, as the dawn wind rises forgotten in the night’s servitude to build the bridges and be the embassy of form as you float into the breath of dawn, dawn wind’s service

 

History breaths like concentric rings

as somebody spoke

into morning fire smoke

and purr of everlasting wings

returned autumn hope

that words condense into October wind

to weave a pathway

October away to earth

 

asters and blooms of white ocean

laughing sea calyxes, fields of thistle

and echinacea punctuation vibrating

this human birth

 

Autumn Listening and Walking Poem

Dear Everyone: This week the poet and novelist Justin Lowe published my poems Autumn Listening and Walking Poem in his great BLUEPEPPER MAGAZINE.  Both poems were written up by Lake Superior in the United States.  Walking Poem has to do with the wonderful beaver ponds you find that are many times amazing architecturally, and there’s been a ton of times that I’ve watched them in the moonlight building and eating.  The beaver’s meat it also the most coveted meat by all wild carnivores up there cause it is so unbelievably fatty and rich since they mostly eat the inner bark and leaves of preferably Aspens.  Thank you Justin!  bluepepper.blogspot.com .
