A Poem: Rotations 

For Robert Creeley

another day
to the horizon
another night
from the sea

the air
cold

another time
for sleeping
another time
for waking

the trees
naked
in the wind

another time
for living
another time
for dreaming

the moon
cups the stars
and over flows

  • Editor's Note: Catalpa

    Proust had his madeleine, the cookie that crumbled in his tea and released the legendary flood of memories in his masterwork. Walking through the park one August morning, I spotted a catalpa tree. The sight of its enormous dangling green beans was enough to send me tumbling through the years till I spilled out on the lawn of my childhood home, a boy again, underneath the massive leafy crown of the catalpa I knew growing up.
