Too often poetry is thought of as the domain of human creativity with its source in the depths of the imagination.

We use it to speak of the world, but not to the non-human world-let alone with it. The poems in Estuaries suggest that speech and poetry are fundamentally rooted in the ecosystem-the detritus of fallen leaves, the curvature of a river bend, and the sound of rain on a herons wings. All of this might be regarded as the speech of the Earth. When we speak or write poetry that engages these voices we become participant in the patterns of the watershed.
