Poet/Writer, gourmand, and sportsman Jim Harrison is a “force of nature.” His writing is compared to Faulkner and Hemingway and his characters are a mixture of an agrarian past and contemporary life.  His most famous writing probably is Legends of the Fall because it later was adapted into film.

I mentioned Jim in a previous post about Russell Chatham, who’s paintings are on the covers of many of Jim’s books. The two both live near one another in Livingston Montana and frequently spend time together fly fishing.

Barking

The moon comes up.
The moon goes down.
This is to inform you
that I didn’t die young.
Age swept past me
but I caught up.
Spring has begun here and each day
brings new birds up from Mexico.
Yesterday I got a call from the outside
world but I said no in thunder.
I was a dog on a short chain
and now there’s no chain.
