    Being Animal Book CoverA love for wild nature suffuses this beautiful collection. Poetry can serve no more important purpose than to rekindle our love of those who are wild. ~Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words and Endgame
    Terri Glass keenly observes a menagerie of animals from the honeybee to the spotted owl in poems that celebrate their beauty and grieve their loss. Some of her poems reflect the fragile balance between the animal and human world, her longing to be animal and her recognition of the animal inside of her. Finally she reveals what animals teach our culture—a way of being without pretense, guiding us into new ways of fully living in our world.

    Kindle Edition
    List Price $3.99
    The Wild Horse of Haiku Book CoverDelightful and profound. Terri explores the true source of haiku—Japanese spirituality—and follows its evolution from Basho & Buson to Kerouac’s POP American haiku. I love this little book with its wisdom and freedom of a wild horse, inspiring us to dive deeper into our own practice of haiku. ~Susan Wooldridge, author of poemcrazy: freeing your life with words
    This book is a comprehensive look at the beauty of haiku, tracing its literary heritage from ninth-century Japan to modern-day American writers who have experimented with this form. It covers the elements of what makes haiku a complex art as well as the problems and discoveries of interpreting this form into English. From Basho to Shiki, Jack Kerourac to Sonia Sanchez, this book reveals key players who either invented or fell in love with the brevity of haiku. Many example poems are given with a glossary of Japanese words pertinent to understanding the history, elements, and technique of haiku.

    From the Crystalline Lattice
    My love for you
    is beyond gender,
    beyond the constraints of personality
    beyond space and time.
    It is contained in the marvelous crystalline lattice,
    held by the heartstrings,
    plucked like a harp,
    dipped into the well of clear water.

    We are here for an instant
    and vanish like a snowflake,
    our imprint shimmering against
    the glass pane.
    But the heart, the heart
    it lasts forever.

  • Unveiling the Mystical Light

    Poems by Terri Glass

    List Price $8 (plus $2 shipping & handling)
    Unveiling the Mystical LightComing across a Terri Glass poem is like discovering violet starfish under a coral reef or a mermaid who dreams of distant hills. ~Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume
    These are poems of “steady light”, a term Robert Bly created to describe poems of praise, poems that embrace a new form of consciousness. Written in a fluid, sensual style, the author sinks her teeth into both earthly and spiritual delights. Here, one not only finds the beauty of geese in migration or a magnificent field of morning glories, but the looming dark thread of the human condition which is continually brought to light by the power and connection to the natural world.
