The Farming Life

This morning I opened a Google alert to find that this gorgeous farming blog (The Farming Life) had shared my poem “I Ate the Cosmos for Breakfast” as part of an inspiring photo essay about their farm. They also quoted an answer I gave Okla Elliott for the magazine “As It Ought To Be”.

I love this farm (Origins) and everything they stand for–sustainability, health, love, service. And seeing farming and poetry come together like this, well, it feeds my heart…

Life and Legends

I’m thrilled to have poems in the second issue of the exciting new journal, Life and Legends, which seeks to build a bridge between east and west. The issue contains a fantastic editorial by Kalpna Singh-Chitnis and is a feast of interviews, translations, poems and ekphrastic responses. So many of my favorite writers are in this issue! Special thanks also to Guest Editor Jennifer Reeser.
