It’s wonderful to have two new poems published this week.
“My Ghost” was published at Connotation Press. Poetry editor Julie Brooks Barbour said some really great things about the poem. I’m so grateful to Julie and all of the crew at Connotation.
It was fun, too, to be in the same issue as Rita Quillen. Be sure to check out Rita’s poems in the issue.
The following day, “Mystery of the Hereafter” was published in Issue 17 of One, the online journal from Jacar Press. I’m grateful to editor Richard Krawiec for including my work among that of many other fine poets.
“Mystery of the Hereafter” was written after visiting the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington D.C. and seeing The Adams Memorial, a sculpture by Augustus Saint-Gaudens (see the image below).
I’ve heard a lot of nice comments from people since these poems have been released. Thanks to all of you who take the time to read these poems.
