I have a rude Word document of cut & paste poems from Robert Moss. I've printed it and it's in a plastic sleeve on the bookshelf aside my bed. When I'm too tired to read, to "get into the flow" of an ongoing story, I just relax and read a Robert poem before drifting off. It would be an enormous pleasure and comfort for me to see these poems, and others, rightfully printed, and illustrated (when & where appropiate) by your own drawn images that I have grown to love and recognize as your own. It's personal and I would like a leather bound copy of extraordinary quality that I may pass down to my children, the generations to come.
Lovely incitement to get on with producing my poetry collection. Merci, Irene!
I think this is the first poem of yours that I have read.. I love that you pair it with such a vital image. I myself experienced electrocution as a child, so I understand that you are right to be so respectful of lightning while honoring it in apostrophes. To be "kin" to such erratic, shocking and death delivering earth energy is a scary legacy in and of itself!I find the simplicity of poem and page layout a quieter aesthetic; a way of appreciating the inspirations of lightning at a safe remove. Thank you.
Sandy - Clearly it's time for me to publish a poetry collection! If you enter "poem" in the search engine here you'll find I have posted quite a few on this blog, and a few more at my Dream Gates blog, and there are several more in my book "Dreamways of the Iroquois".
