When Robert Bly visited Portland several years ago, he read in the distinguished "Poetry Downtown Series" by Literary Arts. Not only did Bly read his own work, he also read the poems of a younger poet he admired. That poet is Jay Leeming, and he'll be in Portland on March 14 to present a workshop during the day, and to read and sign books at Blackbird Wine Shop that evening. Leeming has been praised not only by Robert Bly, but by Li-Young Lee, Naomi Shihab Nye, Martin Prechtel, and his poetry has been featured and read on the air by Garrison Keller for Writer's Almanac. From Ithica, New York, Leeming's poetry is a rattle beating a rhythmic reminder that there are worlds within worlds, and Leeming provides the magnifying glass through which one can view these worlds.
