Forest

I went into the woods

to count the countless trees,

where three hundred years

is young,

found they indeed have a number

the ancient mossy stumps of giants

felled long ago

host seedlings that may never

grow

to the heights of their ancestors

while the wind through the pine boughs

are whispered legends, myths in Mi’kmaq

quietly told to others who will never understand.

Haiku Sunday

4-8-18

Hawks cry from the blue

they carry grass to their nest

far off crows protest.

“Cicadas” New Release Date

Technical difficulties are forcing me to push the release date of “Cicadas”, my new collection of poetry, to next Friday, April 6th.

It will be available as an eBook from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo and others while I will announce the paperback release in approximately a month from now.

Thank you for your patience and understanding!

Here is the second tentative cover. I am leaning towards this one as it is a cleaner, more simplistic look.

I’m pleased to let everyone know that I will be releasing a collection of new poems in April.

“Cicadas” will be available in Kindle and ebook versions first, paperbacks to follow as soon as I determine where my POD services will be.

Here is a rough of the potential cover, as always, thoughts and criticisms are welcome.

Thanks for showing up!

Four 24


The modern gypsies arrive

midday

to back- in and plug-in

set-up and wash-up

solar panels gleam 

in the afternoon light

capturing the moment

the sublime paradox

of their motley

four wheeled renaissance.

Four 22

  
Grass grows up 

between sun bleached

ribs and pelvis

Leaf litter lays

obscured by its insistence

New days rise up

upon the bones of the past

rejoice

in your moment

before the moment has passed.
