Len (Leonard) Freeman recommends writing a poem per day and taking a walk per day as a pretty good discipline for balance in daily life. A retired Episcopal clergyman and journalist, Len headed communications for Trinity Church Wall Street and Washington National Cathedral, along with serving a number of wonderful parishes, in his 70-plus year journey to date.

Over the years Len’s publications have included video series for Harper & Row and Morehouse publishers,  and film and media reviews.

His most recent book  Ashes and The Phoenix, features Len’s poems augmented by meditations from seven other writers, and woodcuts by Jason Sierra. Together with Good Lord Deliver Us, by Len and his wife Lindsay, the books are available in  print, kindle and nook formats at forwardmovement.org, and Amazon.com. 

Hawaii: Poems from a Promised Land, and the children’s book Safe in a Tree, Imara and Me, are available from Amazon.

With multiple sons in the theater and poetry worlds Len is motivated strongly by trying not to embarrass them. He can be reached at his email landl30@aol.com, and would love to hear from you. All poems, unless otherwise noted, are by Len.

    just came across your name in the Living Church. Excellent movie review on “The Lone Ranger”. I like the spareness of your September poems, and offer a couple of my own for your website if they measure up to your standards.

    Thank you for the follow! Please be aware that my blog is a bilingual one.
    So you may get links to some poems in English as well as to some in Italian…
    I’m trying to keep the posting balanced between the two languages. Keep up the good work.
