Today a writer friend, Christine Stewart-Nunez, author of the poetry book Postcard on Parchment, gave me the poem "Relax" by Ellen Bass, published in the American Poetry Review in September/October. It can be read on Poetry Daily online (just click on the poem title). Do you find that some poems arrive at just the right time? This one made it onto the most prestigious location in our home--the fridge door.
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.
