Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 15 . . .
 
Editor’s Note  . . . October 2009 . . .

Last year, one of my contributors asked me why I did not publish artwork along with the poems. I replied that I have always considered the words of a poem all that is necessary: the imagery and metaphor of the piece should create an entire world out of words. However, given the nature of poems to break out of the neat boxes into which we stuff them, I wasn't surprised to find ekphrastic poems and gorgeous artwork quietly gathering around me right after I answered that question.

Within a few months, I committed myself to creating an issue that celebrated the fusion of poetry and art. Because this may be the only such issue I ever publish, I am featuring fifteen poems with accompanying visuals instead of the usual ten, all of them rich with language and the gusto which illuminates the most indelible artwork. Thanks go to my incredible contributors who have helped make this autumn issue such a joyful experience.

It's all about the poetry.
—Sincerely yours,

Christine Klocek-Lim, Editor



About the journal

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, during the months of January, April, July, and October. 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.
