Announcing Shoots and Vines

November 24, 2008

Hey, go check this new online magazine out, SHOOTS and VINES.  A friend of mine just launched it.  They are seeking good work of all kinds to publish and I know a few people who just may fit.  So, if you see any of my work, leave me a holler.  It is updated regularly, so put it on your list.

Too much morning light
can erase the purple and pink-
gray clouds layered above
the hills like cotton ribbons
laid out for an Ozark cotillion.

Leaving, her crunching gravel
dust yellow primrose,
chase the last screech owl
from his nocturnal hunt.

Crow calls break the silence
Monet colors mute and mix
with backwash brush strokes
of too much water
A good sunrise is hard to hold
like tail lights over the last hill.
