Crossing Points

  • An African Journal
    Anne R. P. Dewees

    A journal in poetry of an unforgettable trip through Tanzania. This handsome chapbook is printed on fine papers with colored endpapers.

    From January 20 until February 5, 1995, a small group of us traveled on a tented safari through Tanzania in East Africa. Our route took us into the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and the Arusha National Park. We saw over four hundred species of birds and forty species of mammals. —From introduction by Anne R.P. Dewees


    Cheetah lay still

    Watching me

    His golden eyes

    The color of grass

    But light-filled

    Like shallow gravelly pools

    With the sun in them.
