White Pine: Poems and Prose Poems


As she says in her book White Pine (published in 1994 and nominated for the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Poetry), as humans, we are intrinsically connected to the world by “silvery threads.” This book as well as her poem “Whistling Swans” from her 2015 book of poetry Felicity, exemplify her influence by the Sufi mystic Rumi, as well as Thoreau, Wordsworth, Whitman, Dickinson, and other 19th century transcendental and romantic writers.
