Ringing out the old, ringing in the new

My new year celebration included two poem publications by Penned to Pin on Bowling Green, a wonderful community poetry project in the western Kentucky city of Bowling Green.

The first poem, “Rarities,” appeared in December, and the second, “Ghosts of Cherry Hall,” appeared in January, very nicely framing the transition from 2022 to 2023.

Here’s to a year filled with poetry!


Poems in Stick Figure Poetry, Jaden

The new year began on an exciting note with the Winter 2022 issue of Stick Figure Poetry, which contains my poem “Seattle Snow Storm.” I want to give a shout-out to Jeannine Hall Gailey, whose blog post from a couple years ago inspired the poem. Thank you, Jeannine, and thank you, Stick Figure Poetry!

And earlier in 2021, right before the second half of the year ate my lunch, two other poems of mine were published in Issue #2 of Jaden Magazine, a gorgeous publication of Small Leaf Press in the UK. One of them (“Shuffle”) can be seen in the left-hand column on the second preview page. Thank you, Candice and the rest of the Small Leaf team!

Here’s wishing for us all a year of new opportunities, new ideas, and new perspectives.
