Why The Poetry of Soil? Because I am a farmer/gardener of plants, words, images and beauty. Soil is a fertile medium that grows and sustains much of life as we know it on earth. And yet, we often take it for granted. Poetry on the other hand, can take the mundane nature of soil/life, and turn it into creative growth and an artistry that nourishes and sustains the heart and soul.
Welcome to my blog “The Poetry of Soil.” My muses reside in nature, human character, humor and whimsy. Melancholia and the Japanese aesthetic of wabi sabi most often flavor the flow.
By day, I am a farmer and all other times a poet, visual artist and photographer. It is my desire to poet my paintings and paint with words. Photos help teach me the art of this. I love haiku, tanka, haibun/prose and short freestyle verse. Other poets and artists continually inspire and inform my work. I am grateful to be a part of a community of creative writers and artists sharing on the web and in my local community.
Thank you for visiting my blog – I do hope that you enjoy your visit.
