|Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 5 . . .|
|Editor's Note . . . . . March 2007
Autumn Sky Poetry is one year old! It's been a wonderful year filled with wonderful poetry, and with this issue, more great work is ready for your perusal.
This time around, the poems I chose surprised me with their focus on place and that singular moment where the poem and the reader connect and narrative becomes thought, image becomes emotion.
I hope you enjoy this issue as the poems take you from Philadelphia to Taos. I certainly treasured the journey.
It's all about the poetry.

Reading poetry is a pleasure for which too few of us have the time to spare. My aim, as editor, is to make poetry as accessible as possible: simple pages, simple formatting, exquisite poetry.
Autumn Sky Poetry publishes four issues per year. Every issue contains ten poems by ten different poets. Each poem is one that caught my eye, held my attention, said something profound. The poets may hail from all across our lovely planet and their poems may speak in many different voices, but each one is worth savoring.
