Imagine a Poem at Open: A Journal of Arts and Letters

I have a poem published today in the gorgeous journal Open: A Journal of Arts and Letters. 

Imagine This Portrait

Somewhat new for me, this is a love poem. Maybe I should reword that. While I write a lot of poems with love, this poem has a romantic love relationship as the guiding inspiration.

They’ve paired the poem with a piece of glorious art by Roger Camp.

Also cool is that they have provided links for Kin Types and Doll God. You can pick up the former for around $6 today, although you know that is subject to change at any moment by Big Brother Amazon.

The gardener has been hard at work.

Arizona Through Linda’s Eyes

When I first moved to Arizona, I attended the Arizona State University Piper Center Desert Nights, Rising Stars Writers Conference.  In my workshop group, I met an artist and writer named Linda Fritz Wilson.  Some time later, I was lucky enough to join a small in-person writing group of wonderful women writers and discovered that Linda was in this group.  Serendipity.

Much of her beautiful photography is influenced by our desert habitat and characterized by intense color.
