The Writer, Vernon Wade

Vernon Wade is a poet, author and freelancer. He has been published in The Gorge Literary Journal, Dualsport Rider Magazine, Hack’d Magazine, The Sidecarist, ROB Magazine and The Hood River News.

The world fills him with wonder.  When he looks at the sky he is lifted into flights of fancy, when he stares at the earth he is drawn beneath its surface. He is delighted to find the macrocosm and the microcosm equally mesmerizing.

Behind me and to the west

the lunatic yipping of coyotes echos

A farm dog standing sentry barks

and the pack falls silent


Frost sparkles on the ground

yesterday’s storm has blown through

the night is still and glittering.
