Reflections and notes on the relationship of art to nature and of nature to art from along Warwoman Creek, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Katuah Province of Turtle Island, where the light, the dark, the seasons, the time of deep past, deep present and deep future all mix in alchemal mists to reveal and hide and transform these slopes, shaded coves, bright rivers, deep forests and me, and together sustain me and my art.

SING ME THE CREATION! Poetry Presentation Saturday, April 23rd

 Well, it's Spring and time to come out of winter.
Yesterday the Wood Thrush started singing on Rainy Mountain ,
the Monarchs have returned to Warwoman Creek,
So it's time to sing.
So join me for:

Poems for the Earth, Poems for Coming Home

A poetry presentation dedicated to the earth,
 and finding our true place here.
 The work to speak to a deeper, more intimate relationship
with nature.

  1. As you spoke in the excellent video about the trees being the keepers of existence, I was reminded of the Ents in Tolkien’s the Lord of the Rings trilogy. They are an ancient race of trees being slowly burned, destroyed and decimated by the forces of evil. They have gnarly faces and can move. In one part of the book, two hobbits, Merry and Pippin, are carried through the forest in the arm-branches of one old Ent, until they get to a stand of the old tree's friend by Saruman -very sad. This is a premonition of the ultimate demise of this race of magical tree species.
