James Dean and A Planet Shaped Vase

my own photo

I’m proud to announce that one of my “history haiku” has been published over at Whispers and Echoes. It actually went up Friday, September 30th, the anniversary of James Dean death.

And I’m pleased to announce that one of my climate catastrophe poems is up at the Extinction Rebellion Creative Hub. They posted A Planet Shaped Vase which started out as an April poem-a-day earlier this year.

I strongly encourage everyone to follow both sites.

    My lord Bart – first – James Dean’s grave – heart-hitting.
    ‘Too fast to live – too young to die’

    Then – that poem – about lies and truth.

    My lord – the damage one lie – or rather – evasion – re-enforced by lies – caused in my family alone – multiply by …the world – my oh my – another one going in m’blog.
