I have found a new poet whose work i am coming to love. Here’s a sample, her brief poem, seeing movement:

Seeing Movement

For small creatures such as we, the vastness is bearable only through love.
— Carl Sagan

In his workshirt dark from sweat

the gardener lays down his hedger

to kneel gingerly in thick ivy.

With the hands of Kuan Yin

he flutters the damaged bird up

to his chest, whispering to it.

Also see On Old Congress Run Road, a hauntingly beautiful poem by Susan F. Glassmeyer.

Read more of her poems in Sixfold Journal’s Poetry Winter 2015.

Susan Glassmeyer is the co-director of the Holistic Health Center of Cincinnati and has a private practice as a somatic therapist, specializing in the Feldenkrais Method®. She recently won a grant through Xavier University (Cincinnati) to complete work on a chapbook titled “Body Matters.” She promotes local writing classes, workshops, and activities through her website http://ift.tt/2uSHRci.
