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.
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!!
Autumn Sky Poetry Daily, a beautiful site, has published my ghazal “My Heart Is an Extremity as today’s poem. How thrilling to be in such a wonderful venue! Please check it out. And add the site to favorites. Really fine poems there. Thanks, Christine Klocek-Lim!
