‘Beloved on the Earth’

Earlier this week, I got my contributor’s copies of Beloved on the Earth: 150 Poems of Grief and Gratitude from Holy Cow! Press.

My poem “Bear Butte Passage” was selected for the anthology a while back, and I had been looking forward to seeing it in print. What I was not prepared for, though, was seeing my name among such illustrious others: Billy Collins, Naomi Shihab Nye, Ted Kooser and Li-Young Lee, among other favorites.

As I read the book, I can’t help but think those same well-known poets also received their contributor’s copies this week. They soon may be reading my poem as I’m reading theirs.
