Three Poem up in the February Issue of Verse-Virtual

I have three poems, “Seeing Familiar Faces,” “Accumulating Light,” and “Breaking Morning” in the February issue of *Verse-Virtual*. It’s become a lovely poetry family, and I’m grateful to be included.

    Penny, these are magical. Cannot say which one of these 3 I like the most. Your late husband in search of the (other) goddess during Ostara. A severed bluebird wing – carrier of a soldier’s soul. I love your metaphorical expressions. Congratulations for being chosen for the Verse-Virtual! Blessings, Katja

      Dear Katja, though it looked like you were responding to the February poems, you are responding to May. Your comments lift my heart this early evening! Thanks so much for your kind words.
