Watching Dewdrops Fall is the twenty-first book by Kentucky writer, Jonathan Greene. The poems often read as short meditations or focused observations that linger in the mind long after reading. Greene’s poetry combines elements of Japanese, Buddhist, and American nature writing traditions. Watching Dewdrops Fall was designed by Greene, and each copy is signed, numbered, and hand-sewn by the author. The book was produced by Herb Everett of Peace Rose Graphics in Eugene.
“What I most value in the poetry of Jonathan Green, and in this fine new collection, Watching Dewdrops Fall, is the power of the poems to call the reader back from discursiveness and abstraction to the mysterious reality of the commonplace, the everyday, home.”
