Book of the Week: A Circle of Light

thurston_acircleoflightcoverDoris H. Thurston has hosted groups and mentored poets in Washington for decades. This special tribute volume (Kanshiketsu Press, 2010) was assembled by friends and students to honor her contributions, and so gives us all a chance to have a taste of her special gift.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

spring ritual pulling out roots to make room for roots
(the ants have been busy, the ants are busy, the ants will continue to be busy.)
snake skin caught on a blade of rock windless day
wind in the trees my dreams also fly over the hill
coastal fog one red madrona branch warms the morning
war again . . . the starlings fly south

  1. So beautiful!
    Thank you very much.

    night loses its darkness
    to one robin’s song

    Nature, awakens so delicately!
    a breeze,
    a bird’s song,
    soft touch of light,
    a shining dewdrop,
