LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD
Morris Graves at Woodtown Manor, ca 1958-59, Richard Svare
“The extraordinary gardens that Morris Graves created at his private residences throughout his life were works of art in themselves that deserve to stand alongside his marvelous paintings. Richard Svare’s sensitively crafted book offers an unprecedented insight into Morris Graves’ personal artistic environment.” Ray Kass, author of Morris Graves: Vision of the Inner Eye, Braziller, NY, 1983

Maaenam 50 by Galen Garwood 2012
Now we share everything—
seven petals, seven seas,
seven words like moths
wet with the night. You give me something
I give you, feeding doubt, faith
obscured by the living rain.
The leaves gather what we make
of the yellow bells at dawn,
the horizon ringing us
plural. Seven clouds oblivious
to the seven cathedrals of the sun—
we struck an accord, you and me,
with the scent of an orchid, a shape
we discover in nearby nebulae.
Shattered beauty, unraveling,
every day rings
in seven songs without a name.
Two Eggs And A Lemon by Joanna MacLean.
