Since the publication of   "Neuron Mirror" (co-authored with Michael Walsh),  
  I have continued to write poetry and promote appreciation of poetry.

I now have two manuscripts awaiting publication:  
    One is devoted to dissenters against repressive power in the world over the last 30 years.
    The second book is about the tides of human experience.

        Selected Poems
        by Virginia Walker

A lone turkey struts ...
    picking at droves
    of sunflower seed shells

An egret on newly cut phragmites, . . .
Eating Lemon Bread   (for Sylvia)

A child alone in a foreign land . . .
. . . I would gaze at the light radiance on my finger . . .
A Man Who Writes

for Raul Rivero

Other Poems

The Sacrifice of the Lilies

I used to dream I was a deer, ...
     The Clock
When I was a child we had a clock,
not elaborate, with a maid and man,
vanishing and reappearing, on cue
. . .

Poems from

Neuron Mirror
by Virginia Walker
& Michael Walsh

Waiting for the Butterfly
I have a new digital camera
but no patience at being very still . . .
Her Herbarium
. . . Electronic pages, turning
at my finger glide, . . .
. . . Rockets flare to ashes . . .
Reading the Silk Road
. . .
Mountains and deserts isolate communities,
peaceful cultures flourishing . . .

"And so here in this dense yet elegant collection
we see the perspective from two sides of the mirror:
  • Walker, the poet informed by science , and
  • Walsh, the scientist informed by poetry.
Both are alchemists of their craft."

From the Introduction, by Daniel Thomas Moran
