“A poet must achieve a balance between solitude and solidarity, between feeling
and action, between intimacy of mankind and the revelation of nature.”
Cold overcast morning
the neighborhood, no one dares
to get out of bed.
thrum of rubber bands—
wings of Canada geese.
scat, paw prints, hollowed out hives
but never the bear!
I will read poems about local flora and fauna including poems from my project called Plea for Wildlife about the endangered species in Del Norte County.
