Overview

Michael Head's newest (or second) volume of poems, The Mayfly, explores both the poet's inner world, and the physical world around him. In tender detail, and in the painterly way of one trying to manifest himself in in what he sees, Michael Head, documents the relationship between thought and matter. These poems are lyrical, imaginative, and extremely vivid, like a series of photographs. The ocean, the off-season colors of Cape Cod, will render the reader nautical, salted, and ever so slightly turned around in the wind, as dreams blur with sadness and memory, love and isolation. The heft of his moods and insight define the ever-evolving craft of an artist searching for the music of brief but meaningful thought. The poems have a certain elegance, the author a romantic sensibility. A thoroughly enjoyable book.

--Rachael Mayer

"I loved the clarity of the images; Mike Head is a medium for of the deep image school. He interprets classics of that world and makes them his own. Cross this with a cyclical mind and a reverence for the necessity of confessing and for believing one's way into a fresh, 'natural', cape cod-borne fresh start. He has a keen sense for the weather of emotions and the imagination to express them in new twists on the nature poem."

-Sarah Pearlstein

"Great wit and feeling fill The Mayfly. Little treats like ladybugs and rhubarb dwell in there too. This collection of poetry is a pleasure to hold, to read, and to ponder."

-A.J. Glassman

The bio. (no picture) on bottom should read: This is Mike head's second volume of poetry--the first being Solstice: A Cape Cod Notebook; and this, of course, being The Mayfly (both of which can be found on Amazon.com through Authorhouse.com). Mike is a Mid-Westerner educated on the East coast and inspired by Cape Cod's unique naturalism. He now works on his music and his third volume of poetry in Hyannis Port, Massachusetts.
