Of fires, And rivers, And strange light, And early March days - On the cusp of Spring. Winds blowing in from the north - Rising and falling And coming back again. But losing their sting now; Receding. Winter in its last death throes- Trying to hang on, But weakening. In this fading twilight Under the full moon. Glen Hines is the author of five books, including the recently published Of Time and Rivers, and the highly-regarded Bring in the Gladiators, Observations From a Former College Football Player Who Was Never Able to Become a Fan, all available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. He is the writer and producer of the book and podcast Welcome to the Machine, available on most podcast platforms. His writing has also been featured in Sports Illustrated, Task & Purpose, and the Human Development Project.
