London, Wilson to speak at The Other Voice

By From page A4 | March 19, 2014

Tom Wilson and Peter London are the featured poets at The Other Voice at 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 21, in the library of the Unitarian Universalist Church, 27074 Patwin Road. Refreshments and open mike follow the reading, so all are invited to bring a poem to share.

London, a Davis resident, sees everything as art — images, deeds or words. He is a practicing studio artist and author of numerous articles and books concerning the creative/artistic processes, including “Drawing Closer to Nature; making art in dialogue with the natural world” and “No More Secondhand Art.”

Wilson authored “Till Sun & Moon Go Down,” “The Only Journey” and “After a Night of Rain.”

“In all the different kinds of writing I’ve done, it’s poetry that sustains me,” Wilson said. “In my poems, I follow, as best I can, my mentor William Butler Yeats in setting to words ‘the deep sound of humanity.’ ”

Other poetic influences include John Keats, Rainer Maria Rilke, Robinson Jeffers, Adrienne Rich and Ryokan.
