Event Horizon—Now Available!

My second book of poetry, Event Horizon, is now available on Amazon.com! I hope readers will pick up a copy. You can find it by clicking here. Event Horizon is available in paperback and Kindle formats.

I’ve mentioned before that in the year 2020 I was praying and felt moved to be more intentional about writing and reading poetry. That led to self-publishing my first book, The Wind and the Shadows, and now Event Horizon.

Event Horizon truly is a product of the new focus on poetry I began in 2020. The Wind and the Shadows was a collection of poems written anywhere between the early 1990s and 2020. There are a handful of older poems in Event Horizon but 2/3 to 3/4 were written in 2021 and 2022. Because of this, a few of the poems reflect the political and pandemic angst we’ve all felt the last few years. But that’s not all. I also explore writing that is dream-like or based on dreams. Finally, you’ll also find me trying out some poetic forms like luc bat and villanelle—signs that I’ve been exploring poetry more intentionally.

To cap off this post, I will share a poem from Event Horizon called “Snow Tears.” If you would like to read other poems from this book that I’ve posted, find the list of categories at the bottom of the page and click “Event Horizon.” Or, type “Event Horizon” into the search bar near the bottom of the page.

Snow Tears

It’s the week after Christmas.
I’m back at work.

Before bed,
I step outside
to turn out 
the lighted wreath 
by our door.

The street is vacant 
and dark.

Moments pass
with a slow, muffled dripping
as the eaves and trees weep
melting snow.
