Wild Geese Returning

Sample Poem


(for Robert “Tack” Trostle)

He served his tour
And when all was said and done
Left us like the snow.

Like the adventuresome arc of his life, Michael Gillen's haikus range through time, seasons and places--sometimes sketching delightful miniature portraits of Mother Nature, sometimes unveiling startling encounters with human nature. That's a summary of Wild Geese Returning that I wrote for the back cover of this homage to migratory birds, arts and cultures Gillen embraces, starting with Merchant Marine voyages to Vietnam that set the course of a life that challenges human boundaries in war and peace. —Jan Barry, author of Earth Songs: New and Selected Poems
