PUBLISHED POEMS

In 1988, New Worlds Unlimited published two of my poems in their anthology, Mysteries of the Lyric World. They were the last of my poems they would publish for the folded shortly after the anthology was released.

Here is a poem I wrote when Joni was pregnant with my daughter, Lynn, born in the spring.

SPRING’S PROMISE

My breath frosts the winter scene from my eyes
as I peer out the bedroom window.
Trees bend their naked arms
as a cold north wind gives them life.
The lawn, the hue of hay
bristles with the wind.
I look to the future
when my world will once again fill with life.
I look to my wife round with life herself
and the sound of the promise of spring
rings in my ears.

It’s a little ironic that this was the last poem published in this fourteen year series.
I know you writers out there will savor its meaning.

WAITING TOOL

A pencil sits poised
waiting to give life.
As a sculptor creates form
from the essence of marble
So the words await
Needing a sculptor of thought.

That is the end of the poems published by New Worlds Unlimited.
But my readers, there is more to come. I also published, during this period, with various publishers. I will share those with you next.

Thanks to all who read these poems.
