Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 21 . . .
 

Spring is here. How do I know this? Because I’ve lost power at least three times with the appearance of April’s stormy weather. I know it’s spring when the trees bend over to see what’s blooming on the ground while the wind angrily rearranges the clouds. The poems in this issue are similarly wild, running the gamut from an amusing ode about coffee to a striking commentary on social preening in high school. Some of them stagger and crackle with attitude while others settle calmly into the bones. Whichever your preference, there’s something here for you to enjoy.


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.
