Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 19 . . .
 

The visual arts and poetry have been sliding between the sheets together for centuries: passionately kissing, talking, explaining, and reinterpreting each other's vision over and over again. This issue is no exception. The riot of color and language meshing in a gorgeous explosion of inspiration reminds me of autumn when the leaves dive to the ground and the colors, scent, and sounds of their movement blend into that most perfect of seasons. I suppose that's why I reserve this art theme for the October issue. The poems are brilliant and the artwork is illuminating (and vice versa). Enjoy.


PS: I'd like to introduce my newest staff member, Jennifer Rosa. She's agreed to do the craziest of jobs: help me read submissions. The best part? Jennifer isn't a poet (at least not yet), she's a reader. She's unconcerned with dangling participles, mixed metaphors, and that extra comma the word processor failed to catch. Instead, she likes to focus on the meaning and narrative of the poems we receive, bringing a fresh perspective that has been sorely needed as my submission count has increased. I couldn't be happier to welcome her to the fold.


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.
