Sozar! Postcards From Space Is NOW Available!


My new poetry collection, Postcards from Space, was just released! The awesome cover is by Teresa Jay, along with a guest back cover piece by my multi-talented daughter, Willow Katsumi. I thought I’d share one of the haibun poems with you:

 

On Learning New Customs

 

The Boortean Survey Station is on autopilot. Samples have been gathered, catalogued, discussed. The cultural ambassador is on Haura, learning about their customs.

from Haura

The ambassador has brought Hauran gifts! She pours colored pencils and pens, paper, around the cartographer’s station. We scribble for a while, attempt self-portraits.

Mindgrid communiqué arrives. The mission has been extended through summer. Morale fluctuates.

 

so many flavors
