Two February Poetry Readings

For those of you who live in Southern Connecticut I will be reading some of my poems, along with other poets, on February 10 at 7:00 p.m. at the Carriage Barn in New Canaan, and on February 11 at 1:00 at the Weston Sr. Center.

The poets all belong to the Connecticut Poetry Society and many will have books available to purchase.

The group of poets is a diverse group composed of both the Wilton and New Canaan poets. Their styles are very different and they are very good poets.

I’m looking forward to both events.

The Indiana Voice Journal

Acceptances have been few and far this 2015 for me. But I’m happy to tell my blog readers that persistence pays off. I sent a short story to the above mentioned journal and I was too late for the current issue but they invited me to submit some poetry for the November issue. I immediately responded and an acceptance followed along with a request for a photo to accompany the poem. The poem is titled “The Rainbow” and I just happened to have taken a photo of a double rainbow which I submitted. Both were accepted for the November issue. I will give the link when published but check out the journal:  http://www.indianavoicejournal.com/

Selling Copies of My Chapbook “Theater of Life”

For those of you who might be interested in purchasing my poetry book “Theater of Life” which was published by Finishing Line Press I have reduced the price to $7.00 plus $1.00 for postage.

Here is a sample of one of the poems:

Ray of Hope

You feel the night’s loneliness

as you watch the pumpkin-colored sun

come to rest.

Seagulls cry loudly

as they circle overhead,

drops of salty water touch your lips,

sea spray cleanses your soul

when waves move in from the ocean.

You walk along the aged shore

where others have traveled

reaching out for a fragile thread.

    st-pierre-full-cover-july-28                                                Dark Days

She gazes

through the hazed window

at an overcast sky

hiding a dull gray lake.

Mountains and trees, enshrouded in fog,

invisible behind endless rain.

Trenches open in spring grass

causing rivulets of pain

She waits patiently at the window

reflecting on former days hidden

from sunshine –

dark days like today.
