I am pleased to say that one of my poems is in lovely booklet from Ascent Aspirations (see the link) so I hope you will consider getting a hold of it! Also coming soon, a chapbook edited by Patrick Lane, in which a group of us who wrote at the Glenairely Retreat, a year ago already, are grouped. Look for this from Leaf Press. And I am hoping one of these days to see the Cranberry Tree Anthology, in which apparently I have a poem.

I also want to promote the Massey lectures this year, available on podcast from CBC Ideas. The scholarly and sometimes eloquent literary gentleman, Alberto Manguel, offers his insights. I will dwell in his ruminations on the power of poems, and Words.

More poems

I hold to memory, stone and sea
the holy places we walked together
the simple silence of heat
I watch you see me
through lens to soul
and say a prayer
by ancient rock and sea, in Akka.
