Irony

About This Poem

 

"'Irony' is one of six poems I've written on grasses in the last few years. My dad's family is from the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota and my mom's family is from northern Idaho, yet I grew up in the Southwest. When I travel north, it's the grasses that speak warmly in welcome and they're what I miss most when I leave. I relish the fragrance—fresh and redolent, rich and musky at once...and the sight of breezes across the surface, a graceful oceanic sway. When I write, I write to whom or what I love the most. But it's in absence, most especially, I find poems."
