About the Book

Walks Fallen leaves’ Sweet decay Ferments this morning. Like lovers clinging To memories of lost summer heat, They curl tightly into one another, Dreading their wintry farewell. Sound Beach  November 2015 Touched by the scent of burning corn stalks and pumpkins ripening in the sun, February winds off the Long Island Sound, and midnight ferry runs out of the harbor, Robert Hodum in Catching Winds North celebrates life’s bewilderments and delicious moments. Hodum’s poetry spans nearly fifty years of creative expression that shares lyrical tales inspired by life’s rogue breezes. Selections written during his life in Colombia speak of the mystery and complexities of this Latin American country. Included are poems inspired by his mission trips to Nicaragua that celebrate its people and their folklore.
