Many Congratulations to Ken Gierke for his best of issue poem in The Moons of Autumn: A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse/Word Weaving #1.

rivrvlogr

Three poems I submitted to Word Weaving – A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse appear in its first issue, The Moons of Autumn. A shadorma (Transition), an untitled haiku, and an untitled gogyohka appear with the work of many poets with whom I have become familiar, including Annette Rochelle Aben, Bill Engleson, Franci Hoffman (Eugenia), D. Wallace Peach, Kerfe Roig, Merril D. Smith, and Willow Willers.

My gogyohka also appears on the back cover as “Best of Issue Poem.”

The Moons of Autumn is available in paperback here and in digital form (Kindle) here. Many thanks to editors Colleen Chesebro and JulesPaige for placing my poetry among that of so many fine poets.
