Writing Out Loud

Trees…you shimmer…

Trees

                  you

shimmer in the

landscape

shades of

your former selves

etchings

lost in the tangle

of what lives still

behind you

remembering

long winters

exhanging glances

when snow

built bridges

between you

when spring

sang you

into greenness

your light

lingering past

dusk

                  you

are on fire now

your immolation

brief

your dirge

the keening

I hear

long into

my nights

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 .
