As Carol Moldaw wrote in the book’s introduction: These are poems of grace, subtlety and apparent ease;
their lyricism, as in the “pool hall break of fallen apples,” worn lightly but not carelessly.

Advent by Miriam Sagan

let’s ask ourselves
what is possible—
orange berries
clinging to the thorns

the moon wanes
but like love
replenishes
if only a sliver remains

cattle in the dark field
angels on the doorstep
each house has wings
grown from our intentions

and darkness
with its mother’s caress
touches again, again,
the soft cheek of light

Brass Bell

This is an invitation to submit haiku for the October 2017 issue of brass bell: an online haiku journal.

Theme: body haiku
(haiku about parts of the body)

Include reference to some body part (or the whole body) in your poem(s). Could be related to your body, or to someone else’s.

I will consider one-line and 3-line haiku.

I STRONGLY PREFER new work but previously published poems are okay as long as they do NOT require a credit line (attribution).

PLEASE send more than one poem! I will be looking for variety and the more choices I have, the better. Send up to 10 haiku for consideration.

Deadline:
Wednesday, September 20, 5 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time.
HINT: it is better to send sooner rather than later!

Expected publication date: Sunday October 1, 2017

GUIDELINES:

Paste your haiku in the body of an email — no attachments — and send to:

zee@twcny.rr.com

Be sure to include your name exactly as you wish it to appear, as well as your country. The list of countries will be noted at the top, not with each poem. PLEASE don’t forget to include your country, especially if you do not live in the U.S.A.

If you haven’t been to the brass bell site before then I urge you to visit; read the current issue and browse through the archives. This will also give you a good idea of what I am most drawn to.

Please do not post this invitation to groups, I don’t want to be overwhelmed! THANK YOU.

NOTE: I’ll acknowledge receipt of your submission. If I have questions or suggestions, or if I don’t feel I can use the haiku you sent, I will let you know. Otherwise, I hope you will be pleasantly surprised when you see what I have chosen, when the issue goes online. I’ll send you the link as soon as I publish the October issue.

I look forward to reading your Body Haiku!
Fondly,
Zee

Call for Submissions To Miriam’s Well–Current Creative Topic

Here is a very cool question from my life collaborator–husband Rich Feldman–for all you writers out there.

“Do you have an image of the perfect way for your audience to experience your work? Do you think of someone reading it silently in a garden, reading it out loud, lying in bed listening to a recording of you reading it, or experiencing it in some other specific way?”

Do send me a note and I’ll be doing individual blogs on this–msagan1035@aol.com. Send a pdf or in body of email–and you can add a short bio note if you like.

Look forward to your response! Open to everyone.
