Angelee Deodhar's Poetry

Tonight I'd like to focus on Angelee Deodhar's own poetry.  She has done so much for other poets with the visuals she creates and gives to them, so tonight is a good time to put the spotlight on her own work.  The first poem drew my attention to the blue spruce, a tree I tend to ignore although, more importantly, the poem is about poetry.
