Mary Soon Lees Blog - Elemental Haiku in Science - August 03, 2017 12:24
Expect to see her name pop up again soon, however, as we have two flash pieces and another poem in our inventory! In this interview, Mary gives advice to emerging writers and talks about her own path in the craft. Mary Soon Lee: Often I write a group of poems around a common theme, and in this case I was thinking about alternate realties. I wrote half a dozen variations, including one about Sputnik 23 photographing canals on Mars. Then my son mentioned that when the Soviets launched their first probe to Venus, they still thought the planet might have oceans, and the seed of the poem was born. Then in , my second child was born and I had far less time to write, most of which I spent on mainstream poetry. In , I started a fantasy epic told in poems, which consumed me for several years.

Unplanted groves! Whence the craft Which shook these gentian atoms into form, And dyed the flower with azure deeper far Than that of heaven itself on days serene? What built these marigolds? What clothed these knolls With fiery whortle leaves? What gave the heath Its purple bloom—the Alpine rose its glow? Shew us the power which fills each tuft of grass With sentient swarms? Science dumb— Oh babbling Gnostic!
