Ron Searls

Ron Searls’ poems have been published in The Lyric Magazine, Verse Virtual, and by Indolent Books’ online project “HIV Here and Now.” He is a recently retired software engineer. Before he retired, he remembered that he hadn’t graduated from MIT, re-enrolled, and finished with the class of 2015. And I am very pleased to share he recently won Lyric Magazines’ New England Prize. Founded in 1921, The Lyric is the oldest magazine in North America in continuous publication devoted to traditional poetry. Tonight he will be reading from his debut poetry collection, Trees of Life and Shade.

Trees of Life and Shade

Ron Searls’ Trees of Life and Shade includes both formal and free verse poems about trees, yes, but also poems about the Internet, volcanoes, cancer and T-cell counts, a Chinese pillow, Chopin, a dreaming cello, a puppet like a poem, myth, indeed the whole wild cosmos spinning with ants and termites to stars and planets.
