Autumn Sky Poetry . . . Number 8 . . .
 
Editor’s Note  . . . December 2007 . . .

So far this winter's season, it has rained, snowed, sleeted, flurried, been foggy, windy, balmy, and spectacularly sunny. All of this weather somehow has fit into the past two or three weeks, bringing a sort of wonder to each day. When I sat down to read my submissions, I was struck by how closely the poems matched the weather. They ranged from the absurd to the serious, from the sad to the whimsical. Every one feels completely different, but all of them contain the subtle gusto written about with such conviction by William Hazlitt over a century ago in his essay, On Gusto: “Gusto in art is power or passion defining any object.”

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.
