i will spill
the dust from my lap,
climb the great
inspiration from anthropologie displays
of an ancient tree
in the bark,
scramble up the
most elegant branch,
and drink sloppily from the luscious juice
from the ripest vermillion fruit.
i met rosanne while we worked with sharon olds on a small workshop
at esalen.she was a promising poet and talented musician as well.
i don't know how i got the nerve to apply but was honored
and so nervous to have been accepted to the workshop.
i will never forget the experience working with other poets in the
garden landscape along the big sur coast,
the scrumptious vegetarian food grown from the gardens and
the lively conversations with people from all over the country.
