Tenaya Moods in Red Wolf Journal

I thank editor Irene Toh for including “Tenaya Moods Shared” in Red Wolf Journal. Yosemite’s beauties – especially Tenaya Lake – are sources of spiritual regeneration for all who visit them. Covid has severed us from those beauties for more than a year and our spirits suffer. Words are cabnot substitute, but I hope mine will help a little.

Covid Fog Strikes Again!

Another bank of covid fog just cleared away! I discovered that Red Wolf Journal published a couple of my poems – Hummingbird and Boxing at Mar a Lago – back in October of last year. I missed the memo – no excuses! It’s a fine journal and I thank the editors most humbly!

Bee Shadows

Haiku is the most contemplative writing discipline. I turn to it when ending – or trying to begin – large projects. The respect for words haiku requires affords both healing and new focus. Now and then, I write a good one. The Haiku Journal just published one such in issue 66. Scroll way down!

Covid Cleanup!

I thank staff writer Mariel Argueza for including a recent poem of mine in the Monterey County Weekly. I hope it will provide a chuckle. Humor in unhumorous times is tough to come by!

You’re fired, kid.

Several poems of mine were published today on the Ravens Perch poetry blog. I’ll mention “Pool Decked” because it’s weather appropriate and might offer a chuckle. Don’t hesitate to look at the others, too!
