Concrete poem of a pressed leaf, clothed in its springtime green.
This poem was just featured on the website of our local Corvallis, Oregon bookstore, Grass Roots Books and Music (click the link below).
I submitted it for their Poem A Day e-mails, but they had an overwhelming number of submissions and could not run all of them. However, they were kind enough to present more poems on their website once National Poetry Month ended. I cannot say how honored I feel to be included in the mix of a very talented and artistic community, especially since I just moved here 2 months ago. I’d also like to thank Grass Roots Books for hosting the 2nd annual Poetry Open Mic night on April 30th. It was a great way to conclude National Poetry Month and made me appreciate the creative spirit of Corvallis poets even more. Thank you, local poets, for unfurling your soul. Your spoken word played like music humming melodically in my ears.
