I Wished for an Echo

Posted on

For our July Poem of the Month, we give you a lyrical, pensive poem: Another Dead Letter in Space, by Fabrice B. Poussin. It is a work rich with delicious ideas presented with many a deft, and memorable, turn of phrase. Just the thing for the Dog Days of Summer.

I Need to Touch This

Posted on

In the midst of all our busy business days, all our hot summer road-tripping, all our techno-distractions, we need to stop and take in the accidental beauty surrounding us. Go ahead and look around; you’re sure to be surprised. For our June 2019 Poem of the Month, I give you Warren Andrle’s “Yesterday”. It’s a tight, joyful little poem rooted in serendipity.

Through Your Broken Window

Posted on

Though May brings to mind endings—end of school, end of Springtime—some parts of the US are experiencing late snow (!).What a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world* (to steal from Ray Davies). Anyway, for our May 2019 Poem of the Month we give you Rural Benedictions by Nina Clarence: a delightfully surreal and gentle prayer, of sorts, for all the hard-working folks who keep food on our table.

Today, for our Poem of the Month, we present to you a series of 3 linked haiku by Gregg Dotoli. Each haiku stands on its own, but taken together they create a lovely tableau, a perfectly detailed, luscious snapshot of life outdoors. Ideal poetry for the month of April!

The Way Small Waves Come In

For our March Poem of the Month we bring you a sharp little piece by Simon Perchik, “Untitled (And though the door is here to love you).” A wondrous, sinuously streaming work over-flowing with poignant imagery that delivers honest, emotionally moving sentiments. Check it out.

Inaccurate Kisses

Hearts and flowers, hugs and kisses—valentines and real life. This is what we give you, dear readers, for our February 2019 Poem of the Month: Tryst, by Ray Greenblatt. The piece is an encompassing, detailed look around the romantic life found in adulthood—and all that that implies.

We are All Busy Building

Welcome 2019! So weird to type/write that. Don’t you feel like the future is here, and just brimming with promise? Though the past is always with us in the present, if we pay attention. Our first offering for this new year, Changming Yuan’s poem “Nesting,” emphasizes just that sentiment. A tight, visually enticing little work; rich with eternal, pertinent references. An actual gift of a poem. Enjoy.
