selected haiku

another chance
to know the ordinary
winter meadow
the soft underside
of an afternoon
an owl calls
another answers
her change of heart
bald eagle
now a few heartbeats
and fields away
at the tree line
the wind and I
change course
lingering moonlight
the comfort
of early dawn

praise for frozen earth

...Every poem in frozen earth is packed with commitment to a flourishing earth and a better humanity.

John Stevenson

Managing Editor, The Heron's Nest 

...The spirit of frozen earth illuminates the extraordinary beauty in the ordinary. These are haiku from a poet very much in love with life.

Tom Clausen

The poems in frozen earth bring us to our senses, to the sights, sounds, aromas, hues, and textures that transform momentary awareness into opportunity for insight and significance...

These are haiku of great personal force connecting our aspirations with our humanity, helping [u]s stay alive to the world around us and stay true to ourselves. I can’t think of another collection that casts its net so widely, or one that has introduced so many vivid and memorable haiku.
