Bellingham, Washington is a hotbed of poetry judging by the quality of the submissions Third Wednesday receives from there.  We almost always find something worthy of publication.  This one, by Sarah Murphy-Kangas, is a prime example.  It’s Third Wednesday’s poem of the week.



We like poems that paint a vivid picture and this one from Raymond Byrnes does exactly that.  His poem is a photograph of a stormy Lake Superior.  It’s an apt description of how quickly conditions can change on the big lake using images that are familiar to those who know the hard working inland sea.


In Late November

Our Winter issue includes poems from our Second Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, including this one, one of three winning poems chosen by our editors from among the nearly three hundred poems that were entered.  We’re already looking forward to our Third Ever One Sentence Poetry Contest, beginning in Mid-February.
