PoMotion Welcomes Lance M. Loder

with one comment

Lance M. Loder died last October after a 20 year battle with chronic illness and with the assistance of the Aurora Bridge in Seattle, Washington.

I  first heard Lance’s work read in May 2010 by his friend, to whom he left all of his poetry and writings, Christian Swenson.  I was mezmorized by Swenson’s reading of ‘Scissors’, a poem PoMotion featured earlier this month.  A few emails later, Swenson agreed to the idea of adding Lance as a posthumous contributor to our poetry blog.

Swenson is currently working to build a website, one that will bring to light the vision that Loder had for his writing.   The website will include a large body of Loder’s work.  Loder’s plan was to divide the mass of his poetry (of which there is a profound amount) into books within the collection of Coyote University.  He was planning that each year would have two books, one of lyrics and one of haiku, the contents in chronological order of composing.

In the spirit of the eternal life that writing can offer, we are honored to cross the boundaries of life and death and post Lance’s work.  The work we will feature spans from about March 2009 until just a week before his death.

Learn more about Lance.  Read his poem ‘Beware, Now’ and visit his bio page.

  1. Yes,
    Lance is definitely the poet’s lover poet. When I lived with him for a year and a half. Myself and a few of my poet friends (one an phd. in the craft) loved his work. He would write at least a poem a day and I would often call him just to listen to the new poems he put on his answering machine. Fine poet in the best of Haiku tradition.
