I've created a new page, a Poem Gallery, where I'll post some of my published poems from time to time with a little back story about the genesis of the poem. Today I've posted "Conversions at the Motherhouse of the School Sisters of Notre Dame." You may have read about this religious order when they were featured a while back on the cover of TIME magazine. They are part of The Nun Study being conducted by the University of Minnesota on Alzheimer's disease and its impact on the brain.
I love to play with words. To capture moments on the page. To explore the physical and spiritual geography of what I call "fly-over country." I write from imagination, observation and my own experience of wandering in fly-over country--the literal, physical spaces of my life on the Minnesota prairie and the inner territory of the soul.
