Two Best of the Net Nominations!!

Two outstanding publications which have published work of mine, Autumn Sky Poetry Daily and Sukoon Magazine, have each nominated a poem of mine for Best of the Net. I’m completely overwhelmed and honored by this, both wonderful venues I regularly read for their fantastic work.

Autumn Sky, a must-read for me every morning, nominated “The Year of the Dragon,” a ghazal, for which I am so grateful to editor Christine Klocek-Lim. Sukoon, an Arab-themed magazine with high-quality, moving work including such luminaries as Naomi Shihab Nye and Zeina Hashem-Beck, nominated “The Word for Dawn.” From Cloud 9, my huge gratitude to editor Rewa Zeinati. Thrilled and grateful, yes!! Cheers to all the winners from both venues: what an honor to be among them.

New Ghazal on Autumn Sky

My ghazal “The Year of the Dragon” is live today on! It’s all about the dragon and, as you might expect (don’t ask why), very very cosmic.

Surprise! My Poem “Gently Still Finding You Between” on ASPD!!

Just now I discovered that Autumn Sky Poetry Daily has published my poem, “Gently Still Finding You Between,” which I wrote in memory of my sister several years ago. (It seems like barely yesterday!) Thank you thank you, Christine Klocek-Lim!!
