I find poetry is a wonderful way for us to connect with nature and others. Over the years I have written many poems on birds and nature which are often accompanied by the beautiful artwork of my friend Isabelle Scurry Chapman. In addition to my published works, I am including a series of poems which I have been sending out daily since the pandemic began disrupting life in Houston. I hope that these poems can connect us with each other and with nature during this difficult time.
