On Top
 
All this new stuff goes on top
turn it over, turn it over
wait and water down
from the dark bottom
turn it inside out
let it spread through
Sift down even.
Watch it sprout.

A mind like compost.
 
- Gary Snyder
 
 
Gary Snyder is a rarity in the United States: an immensely popular poet whose work is taken seriously by other poets. He is America's primary poet-celebrant of the wilderness, poet-exponent of environmentalism and Zen Buddhism.
 
This project is more a personal homage than a foolish word-play on this brilliant writer. Though I think it would be in Mr. Snyders sense to play up!
