    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.

Yule 2006

Yule. A quarter moon southwesters in early evening.
From the darkness above, the lonely sounds of geese.

An uneasiness, an uncertainty lies across the earth.
An old cat with no tail watches the empty street.

Valley oaks, long nude of leaves, whisper in a chill wind.
Commanding clouds slide in, covering the moon; thick, strong.
