GATHERING IN anthology

I’m delighted to have three poems included in this anthology, GATHERING IN Covid-19 Silver Linings, published by WindyWood Publishing of Hubbards, Nova Scotia in late October 2020.

The book is featured in the December 12 2020 Chronicle Herald.

Gathering In features poems, prose, artwork, and links to songs and spoken word poetry, from twenty-eight contributors. Several are my friends and neighbours. I’m in good company.

The wide variety of styles and approaches to the topic of ‘silver linings’ will have broad appeal, as I hope my poems will. I didn’t write them during the pandemic lockdown, but I do read them for the perspectives they reinforce for me. They are ostensibly nature-based, and nature is largely unaffected by Covid-19, thank goodness, so that is my silver lining.

One of mine is a ‘concrete’ or visual poem, in which the shape reflects the content:
