Writing Out Loud

Leave a comment



Tree
did  you see the man approaching
with that look
in his eye
that look
that spoke of fire on a cold night
a new shelf in his workshop
shavings for the woman’s
flower beds?
Did you know it would hurt
to have the years
cut from you that way
no blood
trees don’t bleed
but they weep.
I’ve heard them.
Might I have heard you
that day
before the thud
the sound
a tree makes
as it
meets its Maker?

I've been writing personally and professionally for over 40 years, and recently started writing books for Amazon Kindle. During the last 25 years, I have also written for the Journal Tribune in Biddeford, Maine; the Maine Sunday Telegram in Portland, Maine; Current Publishing in Westbrook, Maine; and the Reporter, a weekly newspaper based in Waterboro, Maine. I recently released a book entitled "From the Urban Wilderness: Life in the Southern Maine Woods," which is a collection of essays taken from a weekly column I wrote for the Journal Tribune from 2010 to 2016. It is available from Amazon.com and CreateSpaceStore.com .
