Description

the space we open to is filled with intimacies: intimacy with self, with the natural world, with time, with one’s own journey through all of these. His poems open to life and loss, framed within windows without panes or screens. His poet’s mind expands to whatever space is required to meet each moment as a whole. His keen poet’s eye catches subtle, evocative detail. His poet’s heart opens to the relationships between. He does so with acceptance, compassion, and clarity. And with a tenderness that demands nothing in return.
— Joyce Clement, co-editor of Frogpond (2016 – 2018)

“With his sensitivity to language and refreshingly light touch Newton makes unexpected connections between the spaces around us and the spaces within us. From a flock of starlings to a Shaker-made coat peg he presents touchstones of human emotion with empathy and a quiet, understated confidence.”
— Kristen Lindquist, poet and naturalist

                and the rain
