In his second collection of poetry, David Anthony Martin uses the mirror of nature and the lens of experience to reveal the depths of the experience of life.
His poetry illuminates the beauty of the world and reflects an abiding affection for family, nature, and language itself. Martin’s personality shines in every phrase and image, and his poetry dances between ecstatic joy and monastic reverence. In telling his stories he reveals a thread of contemporary contemplation and a continuing exploration of the interior landscapes of life and love, feelings and fears, of growing up and growing together.
“Thoreau, Cid Corman, Lorine Niedecker, Whalen & Snyder, Sam Hamill and now David Martin, a wilderness walker returning as the missing lynx in the lineage of nature based poetry heartbeating it’s way into our gorges & forests”
~Mike Parker, author of Don’t Fall Off The Mountain, Wallflower Sutra
and Walking on Water in a Razorblade Breeze.
