Two of my poems, The Hands of the Wind and The Unbelonging are in Issue Thirteen (Dec 2017) of the Calamus Journal.

Many thanks to the editor, Eric Cline.

  1. What I love about your work is that history and mystery, poetry and love, speaker and Beloved all wind a wound which sings gorgeously. We are filled with particulars (the sun casting the speaker’s shadow) and everywhere at once. Is there really only one poem, a love song to the world? I often think so. Thanks for sharing riches.

  2. Both of these are so powerful and alive with rich descriptions that really transport the reader, but I especially love In the Hands of the Wind for all that it says and implies about the passage of time.


  3. Two wonderful poems! I love the first especially, the imagery is amazing. Especially “I hold the hands of the wind”, and “the language for welcome and departure are the same.” In the second, I note the tone of longing to belong to the city, and especially like “I talk to you on rooftops, the words translated by a curious moon.” Congrats on publication.
