POETRY – 8/12/21


Welcome to the summer poetry issue! Remember the saying, “pretty is as pretty does?” Well, dark is as dark does! Ooh, look at the pretty sunset . . . and then up rises a creature from the deep! Ooh, breathe in that warm summer breeze . . . and then you receive a lung-full of toxic spores.

You get my meaning . . .

Please join me in thanking this issue’s poets for sharing their work!

Until next time . . .

Your poetry editor,

Terrie Leigh Relf
