“Warrior With Shield,” a poem of mine that I began around fifteen years ago or so, and based on a Henry Moore sculpture, is out with Wrath Bearing Tree, linked below.
It is amazing to work on something for this long, and maybe change in one’s life (without doubt) while trying to hone in on the original impression and insight. It is great to see how the poem has evolved, hopefully into greater expression of the essence of the instinct.
I certainly am grateful for the editors of Wrath Bearing Tree for seeing what I saw and still see!
