And I'm excited to have some of those poems appearing now in print and online. My poem, "Like Hours of Rain on Piles of Brown Leaves," is in the new issue of New England Review. Big thanks and congratulations to poetry editor C. Dale Young, who is retiring from this post after an amazing 19 years at the journal. He was recently honored with the Stanley w. Lindberg Award for Literary Editing in recognition of this tremendous accomplishment and service to writers and readers.
Three poems from this new manuscript are also up now at Connotation Press: An Online Artifact -- "The Angel and the Lady," "A Green River in Spring" and "Cicada." Hearty thanks to editor John Hoppenthaler for including my work in the September issue.
