He authored Songs from a Small Universe (2009), Spangling Darkness (2014), and Strings of Shining Silence: Earth-Love Poems (2017). Raphael’s lived on three continents, mostly living in London, and now in Sebastopol.

TO HER LOVELINESS
 by Raphael Block

each crinkly leaf
each trailing yellow shamrock
or clover crown

each floating spore
swallow swoop
canopy of thousands dancing to the wind

each set of see-through humming wings
open-throated quaver
bright-spiked shoot

each fledgling oak
tottering on
its slender stem

scarlet neckband
draped round
golden poppy

each pair of gold-rimmed coupling beetles
sunbathing mottled rock
swan-winged scented iris

binds us to her loveliness.
