It was evening all afternoon.
It was snowing
And it was going to snow.
The blackbird sat
In the cedar-limbs.
Wallace Stevens, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird” from The Collected Poems of Wallace Stevens.

    1. I absolutely love this poem Martha, I can practically hear Wallace Stevens breathing in it, cogitating how many different takes there are on considering the experience of being human! When I am walking the dog, what I tihnk about the most is how I am bound to my own personal responses to life, and how amazing it would be to be a man, or a bird , or a whale. So much to delight in! When I am on the edge of sleep and it doesnt arrive, I go elsewhen, where I rediscover my past experiences with my now head. Interesting! I loved reading excerpts from your book on a blog by DK Fennel I think. Your book is on my wish list !


I like to hear from you, so tell me what you think.
