New Issue of Poet Lore

by jtandon

Volume 107, No 3.4

The Fall/Winter 2012 issue of Poet Lore is out with poems by Mike White, Marge Piercy, Gary Fincke, Samiya Bashir, Marilyn Chin, Kwame Dawes, Carol Moldaw, William Snyder, Jr., and Mark Wagenaar, among many others. My thanks to the editors for including my poem “Later Poem”:

Later Poem

When I grow old

I will write about how the mist

sinks upon the lake at dawn


until the white disc of the sun begins to yellow

and burns the air into rings of cloud

that halo the dark hills rising

on the opposite shore.


To read the rest of this poem please consider purchasing a copy of my new poetry collection Quality of Life, due out in February 2013!
