The fourth volume of poems by poet John Miatech combines short poems of nature with poetry steeped in reverence of human relationships. To quote Robert Frost from his vivid poem “The Road Not Taken”, these writings reverberate with the lines

“Two roads diverged in a woods, and I,
I took the road less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference”

Moving from California and past loves, Miatech moves into new territory and a new life across the Pacific, captured in a series of poems entitled “Pacific Haikus”.

John Miatech has published three books of poetry, Things to Hope For, Waiting for Thunder and What the Wind Says. He currently is working on a new poetry collection, Beyond the Fence, due out in mid-May, 2014. Miatech’s work has appeared in Anesthesia Review, BlazeVox, RiverSedge, Cellar Roots, Big River Poetry Review, Sarasvati, Blue Lake Review, Northwest Review, the Scribbler and kindofahurricane. He received the poetry award at the San Francisco Literary Conference in 2012. John presently lives in Northern California, where he teaches high school. He grew up in Michigan. In June, he will be moving to the Philippines.
