Newly revised, fresh from Twitter:  a page of micro-poetry, haiku, and more.

Click Haiku plus right here, or on the menu.

And new:  a fresh translation of a classic poem by Du Fu. Don Morgan and I take on another adventure, bringing this powerful poem to life.  Click Du Fu on the menu.  Also new:   my By Evening page, with three poems from this award-winning collection.

Also just as new:  A short-short fiction page, and also now there is a new page of animal poetry--with a link to my first ever audio on the web, my reading of Whales.

And--there is a new translation of the Morning of the Massacre--into Farsi, along with new contemporary-look photos.

You can contact me by email--I'll be very happy to hear from you:   



I was not there

when you saw me.
