Michael Spring book "Unfolding the Field"

Michael Spring is a martial arts instructor and poet. He’s won several awards and distinctions for his poetry, including a Luso-American Fellowship from DISQUIET International; the 2016 Centennial Artist of the Oregon Caves National Monument & Preserve; the 2013 Turtle Island Poetry Award for his chapbook Blue Wolf; Honorable Mention in the 2012 Eric Hoffer Book Award for Root of Lightning; and the 2004 Robert Graves Award. He is also a poetry editor for The Pedestal Magazine, Cobra Lily, and Flowstone Press. He currently lives on the Southern Oregon coast in Brookings.

Several of Michael Spring's poetry & children's books are currently for sale at the Guild Gallery & Art Center:

Woodwoo- The Little Sasquatch: Illustrated by Deborah Ann Dawson.

Ravenwood: Unlike most poetry books that just come with those words on pages, this one pairs the words of award-winning poet Michael Spring with the amazing watercolors of award-winning artist Deborah Ann Dawson. The result is a full color book, featuring watercolors illustrating poems and poems inspiring paintings-and vice versa!

Unfolding the Field: Michael Spring's fourth book of poetry. According to Jared Smith, "Michael Spring's poems are deeply centered within something greater than himself; something that through a nonlinear awareness of, he can become part of-an entering into that which is wild, blue, and indistinct in its outlines. Michael Spring is of the alchemists."According to Absinthe Poetry Review, "Michael Spring is a poet with a rich inner life. Whoever he is in this world, he is also someone who works with the transformative energies of the imagination. His poetry is totemic, introspective, and written with a soulful music that comes predominantly from the natural world. His work invites us to look further than knowledge can reach."
