Bookmarks List/Bedside Table

Currently reading/enjoying:

“Temple Dogs,” by Ira Sukrungruang in Pithead Chapel. A touching essay (it does a lot in few words).

Hibernaculum by Sarah E. Colona. More on this later.

Gregory Orr’s How Beautiful the Beloved. A book I am grateful for! Full of wisdom and little happy-making poems. You can find some of these poems over at VQR Online. Here’s one gem:

Human heart

Human heart —
That tender engine.

Love revs it;
Loss stalls it.

What can make it
Go again?

The poem, the poem.


Happy weekend to you, friends!


  1. I have Orr's book on my list. Love 'Human heart'. It seems he's turning new ground with these poems.

  2. I always think of poetry as being related to brains, not hearts.
