Serpentine, I’d like to make you mine:
you shouldn’t wonder
would I pull you under?
Just take it slow
my waters flow like wine…
Poem Published in Visual Verse!
You can read the full poem here. It is an honour to be included in this online publication, alongside such talented writers as Jane Dougherty, Kim Russell and Misky Braendelholm. Visual Verse publishes a new ekphrastic prompt every month, and you have no more than one hour to write your response.
I have always struggled with ekphrastic in the past, so I am very glad to have an ekphrastic poem accepted for publication. Perhaps I’ll persevere and try some more! The whole publication is well worth reading, and submissions are open from the 1st- 15th of each month.
A brief update
As regular readers will be aware, I am busy editing The Anthropocene Hymnal at present, and preparing the manuscript for publication. I am also thrilled to have joined the team at dVerse Poets’ Pub. These are two serious commitments, so please don’t be offended if I am unable to read and comment to my usual extent. I will always read and comment on poems shared with dVerse, but I might not have time to read as much outside of this forum. Do join us at the bar every Monday, Tuesday and Friday from 3pm EST for some fantastic and challenging poetry prompts!
