    was always there

    november sleet
    and january snows

    the land
    dreaming deep

    it is waking

    in the tree top
    wandering wind

    in the sacred
    of the
    bud and root

    the living streams
    within the human hearts.

    If you enjoy my poetry, I am publishing my first book, "Through the Gate of Trees, Collected Poems of George Lisi". I am honored that this book was requested by my community before I ever dreamed of such a thing! I am two days in to a Kickstarter campaign to crowd fund publication costs, and it is going very well. Here you can pre-buy a copy of the book, and support its creation. I invite you to check it out at . The beautiful project video was put together by fellow Cowbirder Kristina Stykos.
