Issue 29b – October Issue

Saturday morning in the Ozarks: a strong storm just came in, thunder, lightning, hail. The hail is at least pea-sized, possible a bit larger, filbert-sized perhaps. The storm came with a strong wind; it brought the dog into our computer room as she sought safety under the table. It feels like the temperature has dropped. A glance at the radar map shows more storm coming our way. The day feels different as a result of the storm’s arrival.

This meteorological report relates to poetry how? A good poem should pass through your mental atmosphere, changing the temperature, changing the feel of the day, of your experience, at least briefly. There are half a dozen ghazals in this issue that should do that for you. I hope the selection and sequence have their own force beyond that of the individual poems.
