Creative Notes and Poems

I received the new WestWard Quarterly, The Magazine of Family Reading (Spring 2019). Shirley Anne Leonard is the Editor, and Dr. Richard Leonard is the Publisher. They kindly published the small ad Karl and I wrote for this blog. We invite readers of WestWard Quarterly to visit.

These are a few of my poems from WestWard Quarterly, that were published there over the years. This is a print magazine, with a website.


leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

(also published by Bell’s Letters Poet and SMILE)

and planning
the week
what will grow
what should rest

in a sunny corner
of the house
I could be
any age
