I have just reactivated my Facebook page, where I have not posted for many years. Above is the picture I put up––good likeness of how I look these days, at 88.
My new book will be appearing very soon. It called "Some Kiss We Want: Poems Selected and New". I'll keep you posted. Title is taken from Rumi. Poems are taken from my previous 4 volumes of verse.
Here is the opening poem:
There is some kiss we want with our whole lives,
the touch of Spirit on the body.
Yes, of course,
that is the thing we want, touch of Spirit
delight of soul enfleshed and opened,
trembling at last, how could we not remember
how it was before, when You were not there, when all we had
was this cloud of longing and did not even know what it was
we were looking for?
Love to all,
