Issue 19b – February 2008

It’s cold outside — about as cold as it gets in the Ozarks (but not quite the coldest). The poems in the February issue, though are warm with the ferment of the imagination. Sip them or gulp them, but savor them.

Here’s a final reminder of the “clouds and rain” radif challenge. There are still a couple of weeks to go. I will either prepare those ghazals as a separate special issue or as a page within the March or April issue. Send ’em in!
