  1. Hi, I’ve taken a little time off, but have read all your poems. I love them. We share a love of nature. And I also love birds : ) I just left a post today on my site about writing about our relationship with nature. I actually thought of you as I talked about those of us who find such meaning there that it can form a large part of our body of work. I’ll be posting some of my nature poems over time. Take care.

  4. Your line, “Heavy on the birds” reminds me of this paragraph from a friend and fellow writer, K. Shawn Edgar: “I begin. Man, there are a lot of birds lately. Huge Crows, Poorwills, and Tyrant Flycatchers. More than I can remember. Yesterday. Or maybe it started last week with a cloud of them pouring over the reservoir walls, high up and then low over its sloping turf sides. A swirly, carnival-curly living cloudβ€”all flapping their wings and yet, in a way, none seemed to be flapping at all.”

    • That’s a great quote… I am somewhat obsessed by swarming birds, it’s an image that seems so ripe with meaning but none that we can discern

      • Me too; their movement is so reminiscent of other movements in nature: seaweed in the surf, waves, and cloud banks as they interact with mountain tops. But I think there’s certainly level of meaning in the swarm that we can understand and build on. It’s my aim, anyway.

  5. Your self deprecation is endearing (saying some working better than others). I post nearly everything I write and the quality varies enormously….but I’m learning from that. There are actually things I wrote a few months back that are in my drafts but I will never post now because I think I am better….whether others agree is another thing πŸ˜‰

  6. Mine is heavy on the cats, but that’s the unavoidable derivative of living with them. (I live with human beings too.)

    • thank you, Tara! “I only let him out at night sometimes when everybody’s asleep. I say, I know that you’re there, so don’t be sad.” Great lines.

  9. Your blog design changed recently, yes? In my feed your posts no longer look the same and your beautifully written poems no longer have the all-important line breaks…I checked my settings but don’t see anything I could change on my end…do you know what happened? any suggestions?

    • If you click on the poem and read the full version on my blog, it should be formatted fine– something is wonky about the preview formatting, however :/

    Hello C! Loving your poems as usual. I was reading the Poem of the Day over at PoetryFoundation.org and Vicki Hearne’s poetry (1946-2001) reminded me so much of yours. If you don’t know her, then feel free to check her out. It’s often unnerving but also fun to find somebody’s writing so closely matches your own – and the differences too.

    • I was not familiar with Vicki Hearne but I loved the featured poem, and will definitely be seeking out more of her poetry– thank you so much for sharing!
