    Yes! He has done SO MUCH to scatter poetry far and wide! I hope I’ll be one of his seedlings someday!!

  3. Bold, colorful, so much in so few words – like LEE! Thanks for joining the celebration with your own fine work, Jone! :0)

    Just lovely–and so apt. I love the idea of poetry scattering like seeds.

    I saw this on FB and loved it there, too, Jone. Your photos are exquisite, and the poem’s seedlings so, so perfect for Lee.

  6. A perfect image for you, too, Jone as you scatter poetry seedlings with your students!

    Beautiful, Jone!!!

    Beautiful! I love your haiku coupled with your words of thanks “for inspiring and pushing poetry into the world” — such a fitting tribute for LBH.

    How wonderful to scatter the seedlings to grow a beautiful world, Jone. May I capture this for a proposed spring gallery.
