blue wolf by Michael Spring
blue wolf, most recent chapbook and Winner of the 2013 Turtle Island Poetry Award
"With the poems of blue wolf, Michael Spring creates a lyric terrain in which the borders between interior and exterior worlds dissolve, a place where "home is an invisible rope/ stretched tight// from one field to another," where a beckoning round widow is "more mouth than eye." In this magical realm, the poet-riding a pine tree's top in a storm-tells us he's "...simply traveling/ with the trees// thrashing into the numinous...." And we, his grateful readers, can travel with him.
-- Paulann Peteresen Oregon Poet Laureate
