New Least Bit Paperback “earth notes and other poems” by e b bortz

Excited to announce e b bortz’s poetry manuscript earth notes and other poems is now available from Least Bittern Books.  bortz is a Pittsburgh poet, but he takes us on vast terrain inside and outside the US, as he bikes, kayaks, hikes or drives his impressions to the page. He often speaks from a natural landscape, tho sometimes clearly from his office desk, about man vs. nature and beauty vs. what has been wasted. His perspective is thotful and provocative. They are love poems as much as nature ones. We imagine u will enjoy what he does with words.

earth note 52

big pine key, florida

a morning winter star 6am
running
rising fast
red black southeast shadows
coral water lips sealed in secrecy
pelicans     gulls     turkey buzzards
footbridge squatters
next to highway one
the traffic snarls
growls
an ocean mimics a mirror
meets the sun

earth note 59

provincetown, massachusetts

white underside of a humpback’s tail
a series of creamy sand dunes

position themselves
between purple sundown ocean spray
and a nest of juniper pines
their rough green branches
needling our impatience
of living
between morning and evening stars
a cricket song from the hollow
is a million voices
