After Birth / Lorna Rose
3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week:
Broken and Lost / Garrett Phelan
The object poem: Simple enough that we can teach grade school children to write them, complex enough that great poets write them. We think 3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week is a fine example of how much a good object poem can accomplish with a few lines – just look at that final question!
Lake Fishing, East Texas / Michael Hill
3rd Wednesday’s poem of the week from the summer issue.
Fruition / Carolyn R. Russell
Ordinarily a poet should avoid abstractions but, when handled with great skill, an abstraction can produce something as wonderful as this short poem. Great title, great ending, perfect word choices throughout, Fruition apprears in the summer issue of 3rd Wednesday. Thank you, Carolyn Russell, for showing us how it’s done.
