PUBLISHED POEM

Here is another poem from my distant past. It was published in 1974. The title of the anthology was, Quality American Poetry Book II, again quit a stretch. The publisher was Valley Publications edited by William Lloyd Griffin.

CLOUDS

I reach for clouds
High, ever so high do I soar,
Clutching – grasping – then tumbling back.

Clouds are but wisps of vapor,
Phantoms in the sky,
Who can touch a cloud?
I try – fail – then try again;
At times mind joins clouds – soaring,
While I stay behind exposed to the cold – stumbling.

One day mind and soul shall soar skyward
And beyond;
Leaving behind a shell – falling,
Never again to rise,
And reach for a cloud.

A PERSONAL ROAD TO WRITING, SEATTLE EXAMINER

I recently wrote an article, A Personal Road to Writing, on what it takes to be a writer and my own personal experience in the profession for Jennifer Conner. She is the publisher of Books to Go now which has accepted two of my stories. She also writes a column for the Seattle Examiner.

Here’s a link to the article.
