I’m happy to send you to The Sunlight Press to read two of my poems, “Fika on Marstrand Island” and “StarDate: August 27 – Moon and Aldebaran.”
These poems have been in process since my MFA program, and submitting poems for publication is hard.
This new online journal seems like such a nice fit for this pair. Look at the beautiful photography! And the editors have been so nice to work with.
I recently found little white flowers on the spider plant in my kitchen. I was surprised because I usually kill houseplants – even succulents, the ones everyone says are soooo forgiving. To me, these flowers meant I wasn’t doing everything wrong after all. The little cycle of watering and sun I’d settled upon had worked this time. Life!
So, yes, seeing these poems published feels a little bit like that.

I’m so happy for you. I don’t even understand the process of writing or publishing poetry. I can appreciate the struggle, though. So very proud of you for staying with it and sending your beautiful art out into the troubled world.
Makes me think of C S Lewis description of the ethereal concept of “joy”. Hard to describe but there anyway.
Carol York says
Yay! All kinds of happy from these!
Cheri White says

So proud of you! They’re lovely. And so is that spider plant.
