Hey, come on out to California and you can hear me read this stuff three times a month (soon to be four). I'll be waiting!
I love how you worded that: "contended aloneness." That's exactly right!
Glad you enjoyed. The one scary thing about immersing yourself TOO much in old poetry is you start writing that way again for a few verses, then you have to go back and fix it.
And best wishes to you, too. Thanks for reading.
Glad to please a fellow member of the forest animal kingdom.
Thanks. I try to break down the walls between the reader and poet, even when that can be painful. Glad you enjoyed.
