Curator’s note: Carl Sandburg said, “a poem is like an echo asking a shadow to dance.” I think this is a such a wonderful description of what I do as a poet: listen to the echoes, see the shadows in everyday life and from the past, then fuse these to make what I hope is poetic music. It’s that process that makes hours spent writing melt away. I love the fact that I’m so often surprised as to where my poems take me.
