REMINDER: Today, Monday the 25th, at 12:00 noon CST, I’ll cut off submissions for April Word of the Month poems. Don’t miss the deadline!
THANKS to Jane Kurtz for being my Featured Guest last Friday. If you missed her fascinating story, scroll down and enjoy!
My friend Paula Graham http://paulagrahamart.com
is a talented writer and artist. Here’s a picture of her catching a big one. Says Paula, “I snagged a plastic bag filled with sand. Guess the universe wanted me to help clean up the ocean and leave the fish alone.”
She recently invited me to participate in an event where she lives in Oxford, Pennsylvania in which artists and poets were combining their talents to create an exhibit at the museum. Our submission was juried into the Oxford Arts Alliance Gallery show.
Paula sent me a picture of her painting of fish and I wrote a poem inspired by her work. The exhibit was highlighted by a party last week where all the art was admired and all the poems were read aloud.
the satin line
that separates us from
them, dwellers of the blue world,
slender darts suspended
earth and sky
where I, were I able,
might choose now and then
to plunge in and exchange
of fishy gossip.
