A Poem by Neal Whitman

Frost at Midnight

the only sound
cracking boughs
tuning in
my old Crosley
country music
fades in and out
sta sta sta tic tic

Neal Whitman lives with his wife, Elaine, in Pacific Grove, California, and in nearby Carmel both are docents at Tor House built by poet Robinson Jeffers in 1919. He likes to recite poetry in public, combining his words with Elaine's Native American flute. Neal is the 2012 White Buffalo Native American Poet Laureate and winner of the 2011 California Honor Scroll Senior Poet.
