poetry and prose about place

now available: a glimpse of dragon

leave a comment »

a glimpse of dragon, second poetry book in the ‘glimpse of’ series, is now available at Westminster Books in Fredericton.


The book is illustrated with my black and white drawings and considers extraordinary things in ordinary life. These are poems about comets in the sky, ghost cars in the covered bridge and dragons lurking in the campfire.



campfire dragons


dragons prowl

in balsam

backcrawl in amber

blisters of pitch


dragons lurk

under mantles of smoke

blacken the stones

spurt throatfuls of fire


dragons leap

to the Draco sky

watch us grow small

with sparking eyes


close their lids

and sleep in flight

I hope you enjoy ‘a glimpse of dragon.’
