searching for wisdom


mourning doves

call before dawn

over and over


what about the horses?

what about writing some

short poems?


the wisdom of silence as

horses await sun’s touch

on flanks and faces


while i’m already

opening poems

to the cool air

I've been writing mostly poetry for many years and have gotten a number of works accepted in publications and anthologies. I'm most interested in communicating with poets for whom craft is a high priority. I enjoy finding and commenting on poetic gems in other people's work. For my own work, I welcome polite comments, whether positive or critical.

  1. “Opening poems / to the cool air” makes me think the poems are fireflies you’re releasing from a jar when the morning comes. The poems are alive and perhaps waiting to be freed (or written down) in the same manner that the horses are waiting for the sun. Really compelling images, and makes me appreciate fall even more. Thanks for the poem, Michael!
