Sequoia

Chip Kosty and I squeezed in a quick camping trip to Sequoia in June. We hiked, cooked and , of course, visited the big trees. I spent some time sitting on a bench, taking the place in and some good words came to me. I shared them with editor Jayne Jaudon and she shared them on Your Daily Poem. Here’s the link:

Dawn Drums in the Ekphrastic Review

Caspar Buberl’s frieze of marching soldiers, located at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center in Corinth, Mississippi.

Poetry is the most difficult literary discipline of all and I claim no proficiency in it. I do find, however, that making an honest effort, especially with forms unfamiliar to me, improves my writing overall. I wrote the villanelle just published in the Ekphrastic Review some years back.  The poem was inspired by Civil War art and was originally published as a front-piece to Dawn Drums, my Civil War novel.  Ekphrastic Review editor Lorette Luzajic  paired it with a photo of sculptor Caspar Buberl’s 19th Century Civil War frieze. I appreciate her work in finding an image of Caspar’s work that she could share!  Here’s the link:  http://www.ekphrastic.net
