Poetry Space, Winter 2019

Filed under Featured Columns, Art Happens, Share it Here, Arts and Poetry

Moving into winter now, fallen leaves and early snow. In this edition we feature four poems from writers both new to us, and some not so new.

As a reminder, for the time being we strive to publish most, if not all, of the work we receive, or at least a selection of work from each writer who submits.

Given our space constraints, we have a bit of a bias toward shorter poems and cannot make use of photographs, art work, etc. See the guidelines for submission below…

We invite all of our readers to submit their work. To submit, simply email your work to [email protected]. Please include your poems in the body of the email (no more than 3 poems per submission please), and please include your name and where you live; if you prefer to submit anonymously, that’s perfectly fine.

 

Unopenend Presents

Breakfast in bed
A kiss on the cheek

The universe at our fingertips
alive with possibility

like unopenend presents
inside each other’s eyes
