SEEDS (or Austin International Poetry Festival)

The Austin International Poetry Festival is just one week away which brought to mind this poem I wrote years ago. For more information on schedules and performers for this year’s Austin International Poetry Festival visit

Birds seed lakes
flying with fish roe
between each muddy toe

each pond with pike
and smaller fish that pike like

The poets from England were here last year
including Jay, and bearded imp John Row
carrying seeds between each muddy toe
