Poem Published December 2012
This poem originally began as a song lyric, and might still end up getting set to music. It was inspired by a night spent in a hotel in Winnemucca, NV, when the wind was so strong and fierce that dust came in around the door cracks and the trees thrashed low to the ground. The windstorm lasted all night, making for interrupted sleep and fitful dreams. A memorable night. In the morning, there were ravens by the highway, as I drove on.
Bolts Of Silk: beautiful poetry with something to say, is a wonderful online journal, edited by Juliet Wilson. The blog-based journal is eclectic in scope and style, with an emphasis on poetry about nature that evokes an experience in the reader. I'm pleased to be published there again.
