Tracks on Damp Sand
It's a book about light, about seeing, and about finding the words to save what we see and save ourselves. The 62 lyric poems follow the story of a pair of bald eagles building their first nest and hatching their first young. There are also encounters with other creatures, a lost mallard, a raccoon with a limp, a curious doe, a desert sparrow far from home.
I love the braiding of human lives into the animal world ...

Awesome Cover. Something is going on there. Something is definitely going on there ...

I will keep the poems (ever) handy. They do make me slow down and observe more patiently than is my wont at times.
