From The Poetry Garden 3
Here is the third visit to the Poetry Garden. My friend Matthew in San Francisco has a series of YouTube presentatations made out in the Wilderness, near the Yuba River, I think, in the Sierras of California, called The Rheomode Series a YouTube playlist. One of my poems here is called “August Rainfall” and that is a kind of response to his talking about “thinking with things” and getting in touch with the processes of the Natural World. I really liked what he had to say. I prefer to call this relating to things but it is not really a bother as they say. There is a link to Matt’s blog down the right hand side below; or for the playlist go to:
The details about the Greek drinking vessel (a Krater) in my final poem are: the krater was from a Greek Colony burial site in Pithekoussai, it is now called Ischia and is an island in the Gulf of Naples, Italy. It dates from The Geometric Period, late 8th. Century B.C.E.
