Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 6 . . .

Editor's Note . . . . . June 2007

I've learned so much while editing Autumn Sky Poetry in the past year. And after all the work is done, I've found that my original reasons for creating it remain the same: I want to collect my favorite poems the way other people collect books or crystal figurines.

So here is my latest collection: 10 poems/10 poets. Nothing more. I thought about making the place bigger, perhaps redecorating a bit, but in the end, I decided to keep it small. I'm the sole editor and I like being able to highlight the poems that I love. I don't want to clutter up the place with anything else.

So, as always, Enjoy!

It's all about the poetry.
Sincerely yours,

Christine Klocek-Lim, Editor

About

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.
