spiritual language poetry & writings


AB Bio

Alan Botsford, editor of Poetry Kanto, has published two collections of poetry–mamaist: learning a new language (Minato No Hito, 2002), which as the Kyoto Journal wrote, “may be one of the first books of poems to transpire from our global civilization”  and A Book of Shadows (Katydid Books, 2003). In 2010 he published Walt Whitman of Cosmic Folklore (Sage Hill Press) a hybrid collection about which William Heyen has said: “If we’ll read this book as it was written, with Emerson’s ‘flower of the mind,’ it will enlarge our lives.”
