New Poem Featured in Fall 2018 Issue of The Muddy River Poetry Review

I’m thrilled to share that my poem “Breath of a Humpback Whale” has been published in the Fall 2018 issue of Muddy River Poetry Review! This poem was inspired by a whale watch I went on last fall – or, more specifically, a particular moment during the whale watch that took my breath away. 🙂

  2. A beautiful way to capture the memory – I loved it! You managed to express both the moment and the surroundings so well, and express the wonder to the reader. I have never witnessed a Humpback Whale in real life, sadly, but your poem helped me share the experience – so thank you 🙂

    I also read about 10 of the other poems in the issue and was surprised by the diversity of form and subject. I particularly enjoyed the poem “Seedless Guavas” by Ravi Teja Yelamanchili – with its juxtaposition of traditional Hindu literature and scriptures with the poem, old and new, and cultural differences.

    Congratulations again on the publication!

    • You’re welcome! And thank you for your lovely comments on the poem. ❤

      I actually hadn't read "Seedless Guavas" until you mentioned it! And I agree, it's a great poem. Great visuals, and very thought-provoking for the reasons you mentioned.
