This year has been an amazing year for my poetry. And the latest accomplishment might just top them all. I'm absolutely thrilled that The Aurorean has named me one of their two featured poets for their Fall / Winter 2019 issue. 💖 Can't wait to share these beauties about cardinals, bald eagles, and the October full moon with you. ❄🦅🌚🍂 • Btw, congratulations to the other poets who are part of this issue! I'm looking forward to reading your poems. • #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #poets #poetryisalive #naturepoetry #theaurorean #fallpoems #autumnpoems #winterpoems #editorsofinstagram #igeditors #freelanceeditors #writingcoaches #literarycoach #bookeditor #editor #sohappy #soexcited #sograteful #writingwins
If the name sounds familiar, The Aurorean is the same journal that published my poem “Twilight in April” in their Spring / Summer 2019 issue. So to have them publish my work again is a huge honor. And to know they’ve given me one of the premier placements in their latest issue . . . well, I’m floored. And grateful. And thrilled. In other words, I’m feeling a storm of positivity right now.
If you’d like to have a copy so you can read “Glimpse of a Bald Eagle,” “Late Winter Cardinal,” and “Hunter’s Moon,” visit The Aurorean’s webshop and order the Fall / Winter 2019 issue. You can also catch snippets of all three poems in the Instagram post above. (Click on the main image to go to my IG profile, then scroll through the various images for that post.)
