Kindred Spirits


[Sharkpack is the critical weblog maintained by the poet Joseph Spece—”This is a comment on verse by the sharks who guard her.”]

My review of Spece’s stunning first collection of poems: “ROADS is bundled nerves, a visionary ensemble of exacting ideas and forms of mind which diverge ever, it seems, from a core deeply sensitive and cloistered-like the creative nexus of the queen bee, ‘bathed in the royal jellies/and rarer distillates.’ The resultant poems are of a force decisive and singular-and mystic-as only Dickinson could match.”

[From the website: “It is Orion’s fundamental conviction that humans are morally responsible for the world in which we live, and that the individual comes to sense this responsibility as he or she develops a personal bond with nature.”  The best magazine I have found thus far]

[The Alliance for Wild Ethics (AWE) is a consortium of individuals and organizations working to ease the spreading devastation of the animate earth through a rapid transformation of culture, founded by David Abram, author of the groundbreaking work Spell of the Sensuous]
