MARGARET PETTIS POET/AUTHOR
WHERE POEMS ARE BORN
Margaret Pettis has scribbled poems while crossing high wilderness passes
on horseback, memorized kernels of poems while waiting out hailstorms
in red desert alcoves, and fished for metaphors
while skimming clouds mid-stream on a kayak.
Her book, In the Temple of the Stars, respectfully offers
peaceful reactions to the wild world she has learned to love.
In Chokecherry Rain, the poet gathers her life with horses
and living in a rural mountain valley into tesserae of imagery.

THE TURQUOISE BEAR
THE BRONZE RIM
THE WINE-DARK SPELL
A naiad with an entourage
of minnows, I beach
my boat in the shallows,
step barefooted onto the sand.
