With Awl My Hart: In the book, E-Z Spelling, I include a poem to show the shortcomings of spellcheck. Read the spelling poem, With Awl my Hart, here.

Sound Cloud: Visit my SoundCloud page for poem recordings (staring with two poems by one of my favorite poets). :)

Poet Tree: This is here partly because I like the idea of a poet tree under a sound cloud, but also to invite you to this poet tree in Scotland.

The Million-Line Poem is an open-source poem project by Tupelo Press, building couplet by couplet, open to all. To see the poem, click here. Here’s are two of my couplet contributions, based on the context at the time…

………The taste of prey, sweet as a prayer,
……On the tongue of the hungry hawk

…………How many moments of silence and lines of poetry
…………will it take to guide this world’s old soul to peace and empathy?

Linda Eve Diamond's poetry in The Beauty of Listening sweeps me off my feet—her funny (yet dead serious) musings on the fate of the word amazing, her ardent eavesdropping into the secret lives of paper dolls, her still, quiet verses that speak volumes. The book itself is as beautiful as the poems within.” Fred DuBose, Editorial Director, Reader's Digest General Books (ret.)
