Thanks to Rowan Kilduff for sending three nature poems for inclusion in the Dragonfly Library. Rowan is a mountain-runner, writer, activist, photographer, and musician. He lives in the Czech Replubic with his wife, son, and with many good friends around. He has learned the most from his experiences and from the people he shares his life with. This includes work in protected forests, with nonprofits, and as an educator for about ten years–now creating and leading seminars about communication, nature, wilderness, and culture; this comes from a bigger plan for reconnecting people with wilderness.
The real wilderness in place, heart and mind has a lot to teach us, and (maybe) we are fast-learners.
Rowan supports groups including The Rewilding Institute, One Tree Planted, Adventure Scientist, Leave No Trace, and Thunder Valley CDC. His publications include Rewilding Earth, Wingspan.
