'NEIGHBORS The Yard Critters Too' George Held and Joung Un Kim

This welcome opportunity to review a lovely children's book! ('ages 3-11, and above': yes, a must-read for you and I, also)



a longtime friend, poet         George Held,
with artist Joung Un Kim,         have given us 'Neighbors  The Yard Critters Too', second in a series of three children's books -
randomly opening this book, poem and picture were perfect




        'All the time
chanting the name of god,
   sweet sparrows singing'
(poem from Don Wentworth's
     'Past All Traps')





Christ, alone on the Mount of Olives, moments of anguish just before his crucifixion - "I watch, and am as a sparrow alone on the house top". . . 


First book in this series - 
NEIGHBORS:  THE YARD CRITTERS
second, as above, is NEIGHBORS TOO
and, third, to be published in January 2015, is
NEIGHBORS:  THE WATER CRITTERS
  
We should have all three on our most favorite bookshelf. . .  

lovely, and with lovely reviews from many reliable sources.  For you, for me, and for our children.

wow! The Frameless Sky - 'the worlds first haiga and tanka art video journal'-

http://framelesssky.weebly.com
Editor Christine l Villa is seeking our poetry (haiga and tanka) for her new biannual (December and June) publication, and it’s a unique, bold, and sincere endeavor: 
  • ‘The Frameless Sky  the worlds first haiga and tanka art video journal!’ - go to 
includes blending our poetics with the creativity of gifted musician Milan Dimitrejevic:  born 1984 in Serbia, a leader in the international guitar scene, gold medalist/top prizewinner in numerous major worldwide guitar competitions - he can easily be found on you-tube (and, through Christine, so could we!) (an abbreviated, perhaps trampled, bio)
  
A rare and gracious opportunity given to us by ingenious editor Christine L Villa - we must give her our poetic/artistic support. . . 

included in Ms Villa’s resource list is frequent bear creek haiku contributor Neal Whitman - PUTTING THE "GA" AFTER THE "HAI" by Neal Whitman

a favorite poet, Tatjana Debeljački from Užice, Serbia -
                   Gypsy violin. . .

bear creek haiku: submit poetry


bear creek haiku is:

4 sheets of 8.5" by 14" blue paper, stacked, cut in thirds the long way, fold in the middle, two blue staples along the fold (4 sheets = 48 pages of poetry).

Poets names are listed on the first 4 pages (also hometown and state or country) - this, an uninterrupted flow through a diverse and healthy variety of poetics.

Poetry for consideration is mailed to:

'bear creek haiku'
po box 596
Longmont CO  80502
USA

with an SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope).  The SASE is used to mail the issue accepted poems are in to the poet - no poetry accepted? all are returned in the SASE, and! if one or more poems are accepted, the remaining poems are shredded (with dignity).
For a free issue, send an SASE.

many of my long-time poets don't/won't use computers, yet, how far-flung and diverse their published venues!
an example - Jane Stuart, of Greenup, Kentucky, has often had her poetry in Italian anthologies.  Jane once stated 'thank you, no, I don't want a cell phone (I thought they meant a jail cell)'

creek haiku haiku accepts poetry via email (encouraged of poets from other countries), stateside (USA) preference is postal submissions, but, email also ok -
darylayaz@me.com

  hint - the more poems sent, the more that may be published -
  second hint - worthy poems can be sent to several publishing venues in hopes of several acceptances (isn't the opinion of all editors)
  third hint - bear creek haiku is far enough off most online and postal grids that poetry accepted here should seek other fine homes.

selected poem(s) are snipped from the page they arrive on (I appreciate how poet's choose to present poetry, including chosen font/hand-written/even some misspellings) - scotch-taped, perhaps a bit of 'artwork' - finally, the abuse of whatever xerox equipment unsuspecting victims allow access to. Stapled.

Poems submitted can be diverse:
include haiku/senryu/tanka/haiga/shorties/artwork/etc. that will fit on a page - usually, an 11 line limit
