Writing Out Loud

Trees….

Leave a comment

…there is

some days

a great imperative

to touch another living thing

to feel its life force

have it somehow validate my own

give it shape

substance

value…

…to feel another thing

that breathes

pulses  

basks in sun and rain,

that weeps

and bleeds…

…I must some days

run my hand along your bark

and know it

as my own

know the force that beats

just behind it

contained

restrained

struggling to break free

to scream I know

I know…

…and somehow

I think you do…

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 .
