Noon Edition

Charles Greer - Galloping Big May Trails...

Charles Greer says, "Long ago, I learned a Chinese idiom ‘Riding horseback to look at the flowers', which means going too fast to appreciate something important.  But here at the edge of the woods when the earth is warming in spring, riding horseback to look at flowers is exactly what's most important to do."

Charles Greer has lived in southern Indiana more than 30 years, teaching at Indiana University.  He reads from a work-in-progress written in the Haibun form, which weaves short poetry - often haiku - with lyric prose.
