Celestial Bird: A Poem

by Ethel Mortenson Davis

One
became caught
last night
in my net.

This morning
I untangled him —
eyes true and bright,
magnificent iridescent feathers,
and a warm beating heart
that stayed in my hand
as I threw him up into the air
so he could
continue his flight
across the universe.

Love Singing Alive the Moon

by Thomas Davis

Upon a shore where sheets of ice had stacked
Into a shadowed sky, the full moon round
And silver in a field of stars that tracked
The darkness with eternity, the sound
Of waves beyond the ice a lullabye
That serenaded who they were, they walked
And held each other’s hands and felt the sigh
Of what they’d lived inside the talk they’d talked.

And in between their words, love sang the moon
Alive to whom their dreams said they would be
As passion beat against soft silver strewn
As light across ice shards, a filigree
That echoed pulsing waves, blood stirred, inflamed
Into two lifetimes that was love exclaimed.

Book Signings in Shawano and Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin

I will be doing book signings this week in both Shawano and Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin.  The Weirding Storm, A Dragon Epic published by Bennison Books will be featured at both readings, although I will also be signing copies of Sustaining the Forest, the People, and the Spirit, the children’s novel, Salt Bear, and the environmental novel, The Alkali Cliffs.  I am always hoping that readers of fourwindowspress.com might show up to these.

The Shawano event is on Thursday, August 31 from 10:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The Sturgeon Bay event is on September 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

I have been really happy with most of the four book signing events I’ve held so far.  The Weirding Storm, A Dragon Epic seems to have a market.  Proof of that lies in the photograph sent to me by the wonderful novelist, D. M. Denton, whose new book, Without the Veil Between will be in print this year, entitled Yoshi and Dragons, although we should not that there is a mouse in the photograph too:
