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.
Hey, gang — I received some nice news today. Poet Jenny Santellano has kindly agreed to feature a poem of mine in her ongoing video series.
Jenny is a particularly gracious creative person who allows other poets to benefit from her voice; she reads selected poems at her Youtube channel, which you can find right here. (Seriously, guys, she has a beautiful voice.)
The poem selected is “The Writer.” It was part of a trilogy of poems entitled “Three Dreamers,” which was first published in 2013 by Dagda Publishing in its online format, and then in its print anthology, “Threads.” (“Three Dreamers” was also subsequently published by Illumen Magazine, Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo.)
I’ll be sure to post a link when the video appears.
I just received some nice news — two of my poems were featured today at both Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo. The first is entitled “June, Washington, 1998,” and was first published by Dead Beats Literary blog in 2012. The second is a short, humorous poem entitled “Crow’s Feet,” and appeared on this blog last week.
You can find the poems here at Dead Snakes, and here at UFO Gigolo.
As in the past, I am quite grateful to Stephen Jarrell Williams, Editor for both Dead Snakes and UFO Gigolo!
I’m happy today to see one of my latest poems featured over at UFO Gigolo. If you’d like to peruse “Blue Wolves Move In An Indigo Wood” and you didn’t see it yesterday at Dead Snakes, you can read it here:
I’m honored to share here that Dead Snakes published “Three Dreamers” today. This is a set of three related poems that was first featured by Dagda Publishing, in the United Kingdom, in January 2013 — the poems’ individual titles are “The Writer,” “The Secretary,” and “The Bureaucrat.” Dagda subsequently featured these poems in print format in its 2013 poetry anthology, “Threads.” Finally, these poems were published in 2014 by Illumen, a quarterly print-only poetry journal here in the United States.
Editor Stephen Jarrell Williams also kindly informed me the he would feature the poems on another site for which he serves as editor — UFO Gigolo. This online publication focuses on poetry in the genres of fantasy, horror, and science fiction. I’m new to the site, but it looks like great fun, perhaps especially for the sci-fi and horror fans with whom I’ve become acquainted here at my blog.
