More gratitude: Synchronized Chaos, Via Negativa, & One Sentence Poems

I’d like to thank Cristina Deptula, editor/creative facilitator at Synchronized Chaos, for publishing four of my ghazals, including two reprinted from last penny the sun. You can read them in the December 1 issue of Synchronized Chaos (they are written under the name “Halima bint Ayuba”).

I’ve been reading and enjoying Dave Bonta’s Via Negativa blog, which features at least two new poems each day, one each from Dave Bonta and Luisa A. Igloria. I’m taking on a challenge for myself this December: to write a poem every day in response to their poems. Dave Bonta has generously published my response-poems from Dec. 1 and 2 (“Reckoning” and “Loosening”) as guest-posts. Please be sure to follow the links at the bottom of each poem to see the poems by Dave and Luisa that inspired these.

I’d also like to thank Dale Wisely and Robert Scotellaro, editors of One Sentence Poems, for publishing my Hausa and English poem “Gobe, Jibi” (“Tomorrow, Day After”) .

    • Thank you, my friend…thank you so very much for taking the time to read my poems. (By the way, I owe you an email about “Pieta” — your notes were very helpful, and I’m making a small change at the end, replacing that “brain” with a “heart”. 😉 Thanks for the assistance!)
