Closing out another year of blessings…

As we reach the end of 2015, I’d like to thank all of you who’ve stopped by during 2015 to read and offer encouragement and greetings. And I’m grateful to be able to share two new poems published in online journals:

“Missing Home” (written for Antoni Okafor) at Whispers
“Northward, Up” in the January issue of Verse-Virtual

I’m also grateful to have a poem in the just-released Alice in Wonderland anthology from Silver Birch Press. It commemorates the 150th anniversary of the publication of Louis Carroll’s masterpiece, and is available in full-color and black-and-white editions from Amazon. (For readers outside the US, it is also available through Amazon extended distribution, so check your site.)

Finally, the January issue of Right Hand Pointing (Issue 94: Neptune) is now available. Congratulations to all the contributors, and thank you to everyone who submitted. Good poems. Hard choices.

Blessings to each and every one of you in the coming year.


New Work up at…

New Verse News (“A Coin or a Comb”)

Verse Virtual (“No Hiding Place” and four poems from the chapbook And Yes, I Dance)

Visual Verse (“Turning Point”)

Also, I was very taken with the poems from Scott Thomas Outlar and Sheikha A. at Visual Verse this month, and asked their permission to “braid” the lines from their poems together. Here’s a link to the end result, with links to their original poems as well as Scott’s reading of the braid in the first three comments below the poem. 🙂
