Rain & Some Good News

It has rained straight since Friday morning, and the forecast doesn’t call for that to change.  In some ways, our beautiful Autumn October has been ruined.  When I look outside, all I see is a child’s drippy watercolor painting where all the bright hues have run together.  And it’s damp.  And it’s cold. 

Still, I got some good news yesterday.  Holly Burnside and Anthony Frame, editors of Glass: A Journal of Poetry, dropped me a note to say that they nominated my poem, “The Summer I Stopped Catching Bees” for Sundress Publications 2011 Best of the Net Anthology.   Here’s the announcement here, and you can read my poem here.  Thanks Holly and Anthony!


  1. Congrats on your good news!

  2. Congrats! And sorry you’ve got some Seattle weather there – we have forecasted three days of 60 degrees and sun for some reason! Someone must have gotten the weathers mixed up!

  3. David Walsh Said:

    Congrats, Karen. Some great alliteration and inner-line word juxtapositions; really fine flow to the theme. Like it muchly!
