Heron Sea, Short Poems of the Chesapeake Bay, is a startlingly moving look into the heart of the poet and the incomparable beauty of the Chesapeake Bay. Author M. Kei, editor of the critically acclaimed 'Fire Pearls,' issues his first collection of poetry, focusing on the Chesapeake Bay area. Composed while crewing aboard one of the last skipjacks on the bay, and living and working on the Bay's shores, each poem is a loving portrait of life and loss at the Head of the Bay.

 

 

Heron Sea is “a startlingly moving look into the heart of the poet and the incomparable beauty of the Chesapeake Bay…Kei has tapped into the magic of short verse and presented the reader with a collage of amazing depth and insight. Poetry lovers, sailors, everyone in Bay country, and anyone who wants a powerful and beautiful read, should buy this book!”

Denis M. Garrison, Editor, Modern English Tanka

 

“a rich word-tapest6ry of the Chesapeake Bay area. M. Kei’s attunement to environment and the life it engenders is remarkable. Here is a sensual experience so lovingly detailed that the reader is left with a sense of being there. Do visit the world of Heron Sea, see/feel for yourself.”
