Hello. I appreciate your visits to this blog.

I’m finally complete with my check of everything I’ve posted here since July, 2013. I wanted to make sure that everything was looking good in the new template I applied last October.

I’ve revised many poems. I deleted a fair number. Some poems that started out as attempts at haiku I judged as haiku failures, and I turned them into something else.

Going through this sifting and sorting process, it dawned on me that I now consider the poems published up until this point to be a complete body of work.

I now plan to update the Favorites page and then go on to posting longer poems, on a slower schedule, and on a broader range of themes—probably every few weeks or so.

***************************************************************

If you have 15 to 30 minutes to spare, I invite you to a site I consider one of the most important on the net: www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

If you’re confused as to why I keep linking to www.geoengineeringwatch.org and trying to bring to your attention the vast destruction caused by climate engineering, given that this is a poetry site… think about it for a minute! I’m an artist who revels in writing about the natural world. Since moving to rural New Mexico in 2012, the rate of destruction I see in my own backyard has accelerated noticeably. One of several reasons I feel done with writing my daily nature poem is that when I go outside nowadays, I find increasingly more to be sad about. It doesn’t mean that I don’t still see beauty and celebrate what’s lovely around me—and it has been getting harder for me to find those moments of inspiration in the midst of seeing more and more destruction.

My muse is feeling moved to respond more directly to the situation at hand. I’m more of an artist than an activist, so a fair bit of that response will probably be oblique and/or subtle. Some of the shift in my direction will likely make it into this blog, some of it will be expressed in other ways.

Thanks again for reading.

my eye caught, I turn—
horse staring, its friends behind

Because of my concern over geoengineering, I sound an “all creatures alert” at this blog almost daily. If you are interested in knowing what’s concerning me, please visit www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

I love nature and love to see the plants and animals thriving. That’s why I find this site, about climate engineering, worth my time: www.geoengineeringwatch.org.

late fall day, dirt road
each pebble casts a shadow
grindsound of my steps

When I walk under the huge New Mexican sky, I see geoengineering aerosols spread for miles. If you are interested in finding out more about these substances and their effects, please visit www.geoengineeringwatch.org.
