Then the water stirs again, troubled
by the angel within, the homeward angel
fitful, restless, a whirling halo of bright sleep.
—from “Summer Night”
Paul J. Willis’s first full collection of poems was published by Pecan Grove Press in 2008. Visiting Home is soaked through with the Cascades, the Sierra Nevada, and the central coast of California. With the passing of publisher and editor H. Palmer Hall in 2013, Pecan Grove Press has now been dissolved and this title is officially out of print. Copies are still available through Amazon and from the author.
