Here is Lola, staring out into our backyard full of rabbits, chipmunks, birds and a friendly stray cat. When I take pictures of my two kittens (now cats! I suppose, although they are still acting like kittens), I often wonder what they are thinking. I would like to think that Lola is contemplating the quiet world before another round of thunderstorms moves in…
Right now, I am settling down for what I hope will be a productive summer of writing. I have only written one new poem in the last few weeks, and I really want to remedy that situation.
However, the good news is that I have been submitting, rather aggressively, in fact, and all the hard work has paid off. I just got news tonight that The Fourth River wants one of my favorite poems! And for fans of the prose poem, you might want to take a look at The Prose-Poem Project — some of my work can be found on pages (in the page turn format) 61 – 63.
I will be taking a few days off from blogging to spend time with family and friends. Stay safe everyone! And have a great weekend!
