The Dead Along the River Speak to Me

I put this up on Kobo books last night. I decided to try Kobo instead of Kindle this time. And I can keep it up there fro free for as long as I want. Check it if you get a chance. Sample poem below the link.

The Dead Along the River

There are no bodies

in the ground.

Japanese cemeteries

contain only headstones.

On the gentle sweep

of the river bank Kami wander.

Small pink flowers fight

through frozen dirt.

A sudden explosion of color

amongst the black mud.

This afternoon snow

will cover all.
