Poem Online at “A Change in the Wind”

One of my poems made its debut today on “A Change in the Wind,” Kit Stolz’s excellent blog about climate change. Kit frames the issues at the heart of this poem beautifully. I am pleased to have it put out in this way to his thoughtful readership.

It is also an incredibly timely, and circuitous, reminder (from The Muse, to me, to Kit, back to me today) of the importance of relating to nature on its own terms. In light of the recent wildlife tragedy in my own front yard, I find an odd comfort in rereading this piece that came through me, one day, quietly, into this strange world of ours.

Thanks, Kit, for giving quarter to this poem.
