Field Notes in Poetry
BY John Caddy
John Caddy advocates a daily practice of poetry—to explore the world and ones self.
In Morning Earth, John Caddy approaches poetry as a physical act—a morning practice or devotion, a decision to record quickly and without forethought the direct, momentary experience of each new day.
Organized by the seasons of the year (beginning with fall), these poems find wildness near at hand and, through its recording, deepen consciousness of the physical processes of he earth and our own lives. Caddy provides suggestions for individuals, teachers, and students who want to start their own daily poetry journals.
