I have a new poem up at Every Day Poets called Tin Men. It's a semi-autobiographical piece stemming from childhood.

As always, big thank yous to Oonah V. Joslin, Kathleen Cassen Mickelson, Constance Brewer, and the rest of the EDP staff.

Great Big Little Poems Contest: Tanka

My winning poem, Chimes a Bluebell Sky, is featured today at Every Day Poets. It should take you all of ten seconds to read, but I hope it sticks with you a lot longer.

Great Big Little Poems Contest Winner

Earlier this week I received word that a tanka I wrote was chosen as a winner for the Every Day Poets Great Big Little Poems Contest.

For those unfamiliar with the Japanese form of Tanka, click here and also read some fantastic works over at American Tanka. My work is an American version of the poetic form.

7 winners in all were chosen for the week long event beginning on July 8th featuring Jennifer Stakes, Chen-ou Liu, Kent Reed, Angel Zapata, Maeve Heneghan, Jody Costa, and Marion Clarke.

Please do stop by each day. Works will also include other Japanese forms of poetry: Haiku, Senryu, and Haibun.

My congrats to all of the winning writers. Many thanks to editor Constance Brewer and all the other judges.
