I got some great news today — Poetry Pacific will publish my poem “The Writer” in its next annual edition. The poem will be published online in May 2021; I’ll post a link here when it appears.
Poetry Pacific is is “a literary e.zine committed to promoting and publishing the very ‘best’ contemporary poetry in English it can find.” It really is a terrific place to peruse the latest in indie short poetry, as well as artwork from around the world. I really encourage you to give the site a visit, and consider submitting your own creative work.
You can find it right here.
Falling early, in July,
are perforated tapered spades,
or the honeycombed arrows of hearts —
beetle-bitten redbud leaves.

I just received some very nice news — Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine in the United Kingdom will publish my ghost story poem, “This Windy Morning,” in its February 2018 issue. The issue will be released soon, and I believe that it again will be available in both softcover and PDF format.
“This Windy Morning” was first published by Poetry Pacific in November 2017. I’ll post links when it appears over at Peeking Cat.
I hope that you all are enjoying this sunny but blustery winter weekend.
I’m honored to share here that the Vancouver-based Poetry Pacific published three of my poems today in its biannual issue: “This Windy Morning,” “Redbud Leaves,” and “Delaware Sheets.” You can find all three at the link below.
“This Windy Morning” envisions a ghost story for my adopted city of Roanoke, Virginia. “Redbud Leaves” is a very short nature poem I wrote while I lived among the hills of Northern Virginia, and “Delaware Sheets” is a short love poem that wrote a few years back. This third piece was published previously by Every Day Poets, Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo.
I’m quite grateful to Editor-In-Chief Yuan Changming for selecting my work for publication. The Autumn Issue features outstanding work from 73 poets and three visual artists.

Poetry Pacific endeavors to publish and promote the best contemporary poetry in English it can find, and its emphasis is on shorter poetry. Its Editor-In-Chief is nine-time Pushcart-nominee Yuan Changming.
