What a snowstorm, with various branches bowed to the ground. It is beautiful, only lost power for one second (and an email in progress, but easy to rewrite). Hope the roads are OK and know the road crews are working hard.
The Fall/Winter 2012 -2013 SMILE arrived. This large print journal is edited/published by Joyce M. Johnson, in Southbury, CT. She included this poem, which was also published in Bell’s Letters Poet and WestWard Quarterly. Now that I understand better how we all experience the seasons, I don’t worry so much about writing “in sequence” here on this blog. Wonderful to imagine and share!
leaves of bleeding hearts
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
As I retype this poem, I see that the theme of “gold” continues from the previous post. Some poems are gifts – they arrive on their own time and bless many others.
I also want to mention a new online journal, NORTHERN CARDINAL REVIEW, A journal of relatively northern North American literature. They left a comment on my Psalms and Nature blog, after seeing “Autumn Grace” in Westward Quarterly. I hope to send some work for review this spring. Their link is http://northerncardinalreview.wordpress.com.
