About Me

About Me

I am a poet and writer with a special focus on landscape and the natural world. For me, joy often comes in the form of hours spent in the field birding, an experience I love to share with others as a guide and through my writing. 


Next to the budding stubs of milkweed pods,

a monarch caterpillar—striking with its stripes

of black and yellow—chews away on the noxious

leaves, making itself poisonous, while a dozen butterflies

flit around my head, casting some kind of spell

on me as their tiger orange wings slowly beat

against the summer heat, those wings also toxic,

so when they’re migrating hundreds of miles south

and a falcon grabs one in midair, the bug will taste

so bitter the bird will spit it out and let it flap

a little farther down the coast to visit another field

like this one and revive on nectar, its bold wings

a bit tattered now—and you’ll be walking past it

paused on an aster and see that it’s a male, 

two tiny glands visible on its upper hind wings,

and then ponder for a moment toxicity and death,

metamorphosis and pheromones, those small, great 

mysteries, before continuing along with your net.
