Reading at the Orange Rotary Club – August 5, 2014

I enjoyed reading at the Rotary Club of Orange VA for my fellow Rotarians.

And thanks to those who purchased copies of my two books, including Linda Miller, (pictured).

This was the poem I finished with today, from Memories in Clay, Dreams of Wolves:

“When you look too long into an
abyss,
the abyss looks into you.” – Nietzsche
I am
become
hurricane,
whirling
manifestation
of the
abyss
I too
long
look
into.
I wear
whorls
in my
bloodstream.
I hear
winds
in my
earpulse.
I am
made of water
and
wild air.
In the
end, I
dissipate
across
the
wide plains
in
rain,
brief flashes,

and
long echoes.
