Writing Out Loud

Trees…how often…

Trees
 
 
how often have
I turned to you
as to friends
unquestioning
incapable of
judgment
of ridicule
censure
derision
 apathy
you whose
only fault
is that you speak
so softly at times
that I can’t hear
your words of
comfort
or am I the one
who isn’t listening
closely enough
mistaking your sighs
for the wind
your tears
for dew
your arms about me
impediments
to my journey
when you
you
are all
I’ve ever been
sure of

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 .
