Duck Lake Books is publishing tomorrow a wonderful new book by Cheryl J. Fish, Crater & Tower.
In 2010, Fish attended the Pulse Gathering of Scientists at Mount St. Helen’s Volcanic National Monument where in 1980 the crater erupted blowing more than 1,000 feetfrom the mountain top.
This accomplished poet and scholar, having witnessed the terrifying events of September 11, 2001 from a few blocks away as a resident and professor at a nearby community college, melded the “smoke and ash at both places, fragments of bone and rock,shock and death” (1) into the poems in Crater & Tower.
Below are links to this book:
I am spending a lot of time in pre–publishing author stuff, like writing bios, getting endorsement blurbs, looking at cover designs. I’m happy to have the opportunity to publish, but miss my creative time. Does anyone have the same experience?
i posted this Seguidilla, a Spanish seven line syllabic poem with the syllable counts. Someone suggested I post it without the syllable counts, so here it is:
Two oak trees bare their branches
Fractured by moon bright
ice on a lakefront ripples
Clouds capture the light
With glittering gem
Leafless solitary stems
I wander alone
Has anyone else tried this form?
