I am currently the featured poet over at Chantarelle's Notebook, a marvelous online poetry. If you click through to the Featured Poet page, you'll find a short bio and five of my poems:

"Troubled Water", which first appeared in Breaking Waves: An Anthology for Gulf Coast Relief, an e-book that you can still purchase. All proceeds benefit the lands and people affected by the BP oil spill last year - efforts are ongoing. (You can also purchase a version for Kindle from Amazon.

"Socratic Method", a poem inspired by a fallen hemlock tree during one of my writing retreats in New Hampshire. The poem was first printed in Up & Under, the annual journal published by The Quick & Dirty Poets, a Burlington County, NJ group.

"Inside the New Mall," the poem that took third place in the Writer's Digest poetry competition last year.

"Apple Moon", from a collection of moon-related poems I wrote.

"On the Willows", a short poem written in response to a weekly writing exercise. It uses Anglo-Saxon meter, and is based on Psalm 137:2-4.

Congrats! Congrats! I think my mood would be a little more than just cheerful if this had happened to me!

I was ECSTATIC on the day I was asked. I'm merely cheerful now that it's for real!

If only . . .

But boy, that would make a fine job description, wouldn't it? "Poetic Powerhouse!" And it's alliterative, too!

Ooh, very much like that "Socratic Method" -- how often does one get to use the word "hubris" on a poem?? Congratulations!

I believe that is my sole use of the word to date. And thank you. I'm very fond of that poem as well. (The closing quote is, of course, Socrates's.)

That's super cool! Great photo. I don't believe that I've read the apple-moon poem before - I really like it.
