The lovely and much-anticipated new anthology from National Geographic - edited by the inimitable J. Patrick Lewis - finally arrived on the market this month, carrying inside it two of my poems: "San Francisco, Any Night", which shares a page spread with Emily Dickinson (!) and "Catatumbo Lightning", which is about the incredible lightning strikes that occur nearly nightly in an area of Venezuela. (Sometimes there are so many that one could read a book by it!)

I couldn't resist posting this photo of my cat, Kismet, who was happy to oversee my photography session (literally).


Below are photos of the pages with my poems on them. I am especially pleased to be in the company of so many poet-friends, and each page is a delight to look at and to read.

San Francisco -- any morning
When I visited San Francisco, the fog rolled in in the morning and disappeared by noon. Once we stopped our car and looked back at the Golden Gate Bridge; it looked as if a magic tea kettle (or maybe a giant funny cigarette, given the location!) was puffing smoke across the bridge. :-)

I especially like this in "Catatumbo Lightning":
"half mad science/ half Mother Nature"
