Heron Tree

Macri_HeronTree_2020.jpg“Witch Hollow Road” — a ragged sonnet — returns to the apple orchards of southern Illinois to explore our garden of origin in Heron Tree.

Crab Orchard Review

Macri_CrabOrchardReview_2019.jpgWe live near two small lakes with a causeway between them. The banks fill with wild berries every year. The bears come, as well as every kind of bird and snake. I caught this in “Nothing could eat all the berries between the lakes,” a sonnet included in the recent World of Flavors issue of Crab Orchard Review.

This week began with a memorial in Arkansas for Jon Tribble at Camp Aldersgate. And so I share this poem with respect, and gratitude, for him, and for Allison. With love always to both of you.

Louisville Review

Macri_LouisvilleReview_2019.jpgMy father loved taking walks: on Long Island as a child, in southern Illinois on our farm, in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado where he retired, and in Arkansas where his life ended. He gave this love to me. “All One” – a sonnet full of walking – appears in the latest Louisville Review.
