Jim is that rare thing

A poet of place. A man of the West, equally at ease in the city as he is in the wild, his poems make us feel the presence of a compassionate and perceptive eye that never judges and never fails to love his subject.


-Anita Harmon



   a peek inside...

 an excerpt from Jim's poem

THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF LONELINESS


"...our faces share one breath,

one scent, your scent of Spring

like the Spring when I tripped and you

caught my laugh.


You used to keep the laugh

cupped in your delicate hands;

put it on my plate

each morning.


That is the exact opposite

of loneliness I whisper

in the dark."
