From My Corner Seat
About the Book
The Corner Table's Point Of View My corner table sits in this back niche, along the path from door to arch, from back hall to the next room, looking to the front door, seen around the jamb another arch provides. I sit and write, allow distractions here and there - a customer's approach, a man and his computer across the room, the pair departing, smiles and frowns, the sway of hips and swish of skirts, a water splash, a bit of voice, a lush of quiet, conversation and radiio beyond my sight. This is a place of watching worlds go by, the worlds that barely notice.
About the Author
I began writing poetry in the early 1980s, based on my experiences and observations; I soon found that my poems helped me see what was around me better, both in nature and in the practice of Ministry from which I retired in 2007. I joined the on-line poetry workshop DesertMoonReview.com in April 2004 and was active for several years - a moderator from June 2004 and Associate Editor froom April 2005. I have been inactive there since November of 2008. My close colleagues and poetry-friends have supported my interest in sharing these poems, my second collection published by AuthorHouse.com.
