Spring poetry journals arrive in the mail gifted editors, poets, and publishers I would like to read them all yet the week has been busy with art at home I admire the journals and set them aside for the morning and will give them a season of my time
reading a Psalm . . . I listen to the green and my heart is at peace
* Listen to the Green, by Luci Shaw, is a favorite book.
This is reprinted from the post at Poems For Bulletin Boards, with images from wpclipart (education and art site – a wide variety of images). My post might be an idea for National Poetry Month and Earth Day (April 22). Students can share favorite authors. My haiku is a thank you note, and models credit for inspiration. I read every book by Luci Shaw, and there are many over decades. I deleted my reblog of the same post earlier this week.
I reblog often, and also update posts and designs. I learn a lot from WordPress.com and am grateful. I can try new ideas, and revise. I often review my archives and reprint in new ways.
Welcoming Hope: Poems for those in needis a book that we published with Time of Singing poetry journal. I reread the book recently, and the poems are strong and timeless.
Lora Homan Zill and I served as the Editors. Charles A. Waugaman was the Art Editor and Illustrator.
The book includes poems by many poets. With the universal themes of faith and hope, the book continues to be a beautiful work of art.
The book can be ordered from The Blue Collar Artist Time of Singing. All proceeds benefit Time of Singing. You can also learn more about Time of Singing “quarterly Christian poetry journal from Wind & Water Press.”
