    I haven't read all of James Lee Jobe's poems yet, but enough to know I've found a poet who paints pictures that I can instantly and clearly see, and that are worth seeing! That's quite a talent. I've also discovered-one example is the poem 'Coexistence'-how James effortlessly makes a poem work on both a mundane and a mythic level-wonderful because our lives are like that, too.
    I look forward to reading more of James' work.

Best Poem of James Lee Jobe

The End of Summer

A crow screams at me from the eave of the garage roof.
I wonder, does he carry the soul of the man that I slew?

The last quarter-moon of summer, a barn owl circles
the nude hay field, a mouse hides among broken stalks.

Summer stumbles to an end, an anxiousness blankets
the valley fields. The end is near. The wind is changing.

When the crow leaves, I will fly with him, the breeze in my face,
the treetops at my feet, the fields a blurry carpet far below.
