“As beautiful as deer tracks on fresh snow.” —DALLAS MORNING NEWS

In Morning Earth, John Caddy advocates for a daily practice of poetry, to explore the world and one’s self.

Caddy approaches poetry almost 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 the earth and our own lives. Along the way, Caddy provides suggestions for individuals, teachers, and students who want to start their own daily poetry journals.

At once lovely and inspiring, Morning Earth encourages both new and seasoned writers to explore their inner and outer worlds.
