Two Poems from “Recycling Starlight” posted today at “Sea Stories”

I’m happy to report that two poems from Recycling Starlight: “Facing the Sea,” and “I Swim a Sea That Has No Shore or Bottom” were posted today, October 4, at the Autumnal Issue of Sea Stories: [please scroll down]

I’ve been in Sea Stories before, under different editorship, and have always found it a fascinating journal. I encourage you to read the other poems and essays, enjoy the photos—roam around the site.

Other than that, I’m getting ready to go up to Newark, NJ, for the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, October 7th-10th, where I’ll be reading on Saturday, October 9th, between 12:20 and 1:20 p.m., sharing the podium with two other poets. (Please see earlier post or visit the 2010 Dodge Poetry Festival site for full details on all the wonderful goings-on at the Festival.)

Finally, autumn weather is here at the South Jersey shore area, though we’ve had more than our share of rain recently. The weather for the Dodge Festival is supposed to be clear, crisp and cool. Hope to see you there!
