Poetry Life & Times July 2002 Continued:

Poetry By Mike Shields

See Main Page for biography.

Mike's book: Mica-Shards, Moth-Wings... I found this a fascinating read; some of the lines in "Air Moving" especially (Featured here on this page) cut the reader to the quick with their poignancy and stark truth. These poems impart vivid observations on life and death, along with powerful descriptions which transport you to all of the places Mike has visited on his travels.
