Spindrift suggests stuff blown onto beaches, beaches of discovery in one's mind. When these poems show a squirrel, a fish, birds, a beggar, an Irish pub, or a dish we see these as metaphors which conjure up ideas or feelings from our own familiarity with them. A poem that begins as an abstraction, like an enemy or peace or patience, becomes objectified. Spindrift is comprised of whatever little gems might be found along the shore, examined closely to become part of the reader's experience. These jottings of spindrift take off from that experience like going to an airport when you want to be someplace else - or like poems which say one thing when they mean another.
