with her hand extended, as in payment,
and the seeds
distinct, gold, calling”

the soft, shifty

Today I heard of the passing of Linda Gregg, a poet I unfortunately did not know. To honor her, as I honor any poet who has died, I read her work for the first time. It’s heart-wrenching. This is my take on my first experience with Linda Gregg, and a poem of hers I hope will never let me go.
In honor of the excellent poet, Marni Ludwig, here are five poems: Four of hers and one of mine. All my love today to Marni, her family, and her friends.
