Dear Everyone: I’m so proud to have another beach poem published by Justin Lowe’s Bluepepper magazine! I love that meeting ground of land and water, of geographies, boundaries, languages, and that ever-changing eco-system that the shore represents, like two musics coming together. In this case, two people, too. Thankyou Justin! bluepepper.blogspot.com
Dear Everyone: I’m proud to announce that this week the poet and novelist Justin Lowe published my Lake Superior poem Morning Fire On The Beach in his wonderful Bluepepper magazine. This poem was written on the south shore of Lake Superior during a summer when I made a fire and drank tea and wrote poems and journals on the beach every morning before heading off to work at a small farm. Then often times it was back to the beach again to watch the sunset and then study poetry in my tent by lamplight. Thank you Justin! bluepepper.blogspot.com
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
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 .
