Issue 26e – May 2009

The six poems in the May issue accumulated over a period of months. As they were submitted, I saw them forming a group to celebrate summer. As background, I prefer to think of the seasons starting according to traditional dates: fall about August 2, winter about November 1, spring around February 2, and summer around May 1 or 2. That fits with the way I’ve always experienced the seasons in the temperate zone. So, this issue celebrates the onset of summer.
