My poem, “From Left to Right I Ponder Politics and Kanji,” is up at Bonnie McClellan’s International Poetry Month Celebration. She’ll be presenting 28 poems following this year’s theme of “Neural Networks: The Creative Power of Language.” It’s been a fun, interesting month, with more to come.

  1. The Chinese character for ‘wind’ 風 used to be 鳳 (phoenix) – the disturbance of air current created by the phoenix rising, perhaps therein lies the myth that wind was created by the phoenix.

    風 has now been further simplified to 风, an ‘x’ marks where the bird 鳥, then the worm 虫 used to be. Appropriate as literacy diminishes.

  2. “Left to down, up to right” is exactly how it feels to me. Fantastic poem. And sound advice; considering water is just what gets me through the day — and that glass of wine at the end sure doesn’t hurt. 🙂
