My poems in the
January 2020 issue of

Scarlet Leaf Review

The current issue of Scarlet Leaf Reviewfeatures five of my poems. They explore ideas about nature and our relationship to it. Perhaps we share the fate of our trees, oceans and air. Here are the titles:

Middle of Ages
Fig Tree
Carbon Copy
A Natural Deceit
Shallow As a Peach

I hope you’ll take a look. And leave a comment.
