A Poetry of BirdsA Poetry of Birds: Poems About Birds and the Photographs that Inspired Them (2017) – 70 pages;  $5.99 eBook / $23.95 ($18.95 US plus $5.00 S&H) hardbound
(Read more...)

Do you love poetry? Birds? If yes, this book is for you. A hardback with a vivid cover filled with striking bird photos, it’s perfect for coffee table display. Inside, I celebrate 37 bird species by pairing my own poems with a naturalist’s professional photos of each species in the wild. The poems embody close observation of birds and their behaviors per se and as triggers for reflections on human life. What is unique in each species’ biology and be­havior? What feelings and thoughts do the dagger beak, the crimson plume, the hooded eye, inspire in the human heart and mind? As the lives of birds are both beautiful and harsh, so too the poems are alive with both exaltation and suffering.  If seeing a wild bird fills you with joy and wonder, and a well-wrought poem transports you, expect A Poetry of Birds to do the same.

Morning and Begin AgainMorning and Begin Again (2012) – 186 pages; $2.99 Kindle/$7.99 paper (Read more. . .)

In Morning and Begin Again, the poems are grouped according to life's great themes: childhood, love, transience, depression, nature, places lived in and visited, and remembrances of loved ones lost. The overall theme is death and rebirth, in both inner and outer life. These poems are not obscure or abstract conceptual puzzles, but rather are grounded in remembered and imagined events and tell stories about living: its depths and shallows, whelms and hollows. The goal is, through image and sound, to involve and move readers, to power and intensify their lives by enabling them to share in the poet's most potent and fascinating experiences.
