New Issue of Poet Lore
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”:
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!
