Ferments this morning.
Like lovers clinging
To memories of lost summer heat,
They curl tightly into one another,
Dreading their wintry farewell.

Hodums poetry spans nearly fifty years of creative expression that shares lyrical tales inspired by lifes rogue breezes. Selections written during his life in Colombia speak of the mystery and complexities of this Latin American country.
