it was amazing

This is an international collection with a wonderfully varied array of poetry and haiku. Canadian, Australian, Irish, as well as American poets are featured.

Excerpts from two of my own contributions:

Prowling round my perimeters
A great, grey predatory male
With scars on his flank,
A coarseness to his muzzle
And one skewed tooth.

I see him in the woods.
He stops -
Holding my eyes captive
Whilst he devours.
I have no defence against those eyes,
Hunted to the brink of extinction
Their flame dark and intense -
The forest fire consuming lesser fires
Cradled in man made girdles of rock.
[from "The European Wolf"]

There are inroads to the heart
Where the shy musk doe waits
In moist moss gardens.

Invasion can't discover and peel back
The layers of her love.
Salt erodes the path her pain reveals.
Cliffs form
the legend and
The sorceress.
[from "Isle of Circe"]
