Writing Out Loud

Deciduous II

Trees….do we not

like you

shed our cares and woes

as so many useless leaves,

as dead and desiccated hopes

unrealized dreams?

And like you

do we not create more

of their kind daily

suffering their sapping

of our strength

their annual and ritualistic

blood offering


they are what make us

what we are?

It is that which makes us kin,

entities that

without the light

are nothing.

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 .
