Thomas Tokarski is a Bloomington poet and environmental/social activist who writes to fend off despair and cynicism. In spite of the sad state of the world he remains a reluctant optimist. His poems emerge from a profound interest in and respect for, this complex, beautiful, fragile planet and all the strange creatures that inhabit it, including us. It is the only home we will ever have. It is his firm believe that –
Peace must be rooted in the earth
if it is to flower in the people.
