I am a poet and freelance writer, as well as a naturalist and birding guide, enjoying life on the beautiful coast of Maine. Since 2009, I've written a daily haiku blog.

Books Published:

My publications include three books of non-haiku poetry: Invocation to the Birds (Oyster River Press, 2001); Transportation (Megunticook Press, 2011); Tourists in the Known World (Megunticook Press, 2017). Garrison Keillor has read three of my poems on NPR's The Writer's Almanac.

Selected Work
my mother singing
on my answering machine
another year
sea cliff
the best viewpoint
tagged by gulls
berry harvest
the blue taste
of fog
watching moonrise
wrapped in snow
cement Buddha
scent of sweetfern
on my fingers
warbler's song
around my reading light
the moths join me
