Under a Tree

Schonmaier Compose (tree).jpg

I’m reading the proofs from Arc Poetry Magazine for my forthcoming poem “Compose.”  This is always one of my favourite moments as a writer when all the invisible work of being a poet starts to feel and become real. The poem is about two people working together composing music and writing poetry while sitting under the sun-shelter of a tree. These trees from a distance look scrawny but they provide an amazing small oasis in the form of a cool micro-climate during the heat of the day. Trees are so essential to our world in so many diverse and important ways.
