Two Publication Notes

Angelika Wienert informed me that the WHC-German Winter Issue 2009 is online. Here are a couple of poems from this issue.

Stumme Wirbel ...
im Schneetreiben
sich selbst verlieren

silent twirls ...
to lose oneself
in the blowing snow

Marion Naumann D`Alnoncourt

im zarten neuschnee
der schlurfende schuhabdruck
vom kranken nachbarn

in delicate snow
the shuffling footmark
of the sick neighbour

Gabriele Brunsch

Browse over to the WHC-German Winter Issue 2009 web site to read the many other fine poems.

On a belated note, Issue 3 of Magnapoets arrived in my mailbox last week. This is the anniversary issue of a journal that includes/accepts haiku, senryu, tanka, longer forms of poetry, and short stories. Here are three poems from this poetry-packed issue:


free public library
concert, symphony and
singers, two hours of
Gustav Mahler and a
reception for everyone,
then through sliding
glass doors into bitter
winter weather . . .
moments of
so much more
than this homelessness. . .

-- ayaz daryl nielsen

spring cleaning
we neaten the piles
of junk

-- Liam Wilkinson

after driving for hours
I lie down
holding a pool
of the Atlantic Ocean
in my belly button

--Collin Barber

This issue also features the Pushcart Prize nominations. Subscription and submission information is available at
