Print issue #139 will soon be in the mail to everyone, and! I'm already eager to start on issue #140. . . noble assistant editors Tama, Frosty, shall we present a few of issue 140's finest in this post?
Eager meows! Frosty
says, "And that little bribe
of an extra treat made my
saying yes even easier!"
"With or without treats,"
insists Tama, "let's do it! And I'll choose
our first poet!". . .
from across the street
I watch you
turn out your nightlight we hit our stride
no ill intent when we wear
just longing the other's shoes
^poet Cathy Porter Omaha, Nebraska^
from Toma Rosen's journals. . .
Weed-cat waits purring
resting at my window sill--
only entering when invited
unless of course
when supper's on the grill
he boldly saunters
into the kitchen light
if this day's special
meets his approval
^artist^ Paula Yup Spokane, Washington
^artist^ Lone Crow. . . we miss you
scratching my way subway in motion
through summer wheels sing lullabies
passengers fall asleep
^poet Patricia Carragon Brooklyn, New York^
^poets/artists Tama and Frosty^
throwing its rays,
you blow away
^poet Ndongolera C. Mwangupili Mzuzu, Malawi^
connecting flight your hand in mine
^poet Joanna M. Weston Shawinigan Lake, British Columbia^
Frosty: "You know, Mister Editor, creating this post has been a lovely endeavor". . . "quite poignant, too," states Tama. . .
Noble assistant editors, thank you for selecting these fine poets and their poetry. . . now, it's time for us to have our treats!
see you in a moment
