Jeff Gundy’s book on theopoetics, Songs from an Empty Cage: Poetry, Mystery, Anabaptism, and Peace, will be published in 2013, and a book of poems titled Somewhere near Defiance is due out in 2014. His most recent obsession is careening along the country roads of northwest Ohio on his new blue bicycle. He teaches at Bluffton University and has three grown sons and two grand-dogs, Loki and Sid.
Sea gull quartering the wind. Heron along the shore, / then pinwheeling back, low to the water. Wind in poplar, / cedar, beech, and pine, each speaking in a different voice.
I always feel more religious in the sunshine, / especially if it’s not hot and the place is pretty / and most people can’t afford to get there or just / don’t bother. Morning has broken and all that.
