I came on Julie Maclean's recommendation - and glad I did. There's a gentleness and respectfulness (is that a word?) which runs through the poems and the website that I like.

Regarding Maren O. Mitchell's alphabetic poems:
"Y, The Philosophical Letter"
Y is it found in Greek but not in Latin?
Y, the infant's wail becomes the toddlers query and the elder's muse.
M, the earliest consonant we can muster--the hum of satisfaction and desire.

I'm impressed by the high quality of poems in this issue - all those by Bone, Jean's spot on "Exercise no. 38," the smooth flow of "Conveying the Blessing," Larkin's magnetic "Inhale," and the
startling and touching "Lindow Man." Personally, I am most intrigued by Changming's vision of "Y," as opposed to my own vision.

How clever to write poems about an alphabet letter. Interesting! All the best, Glenda Barrett
A lovely journal--thank you! Enjoyed the poem about bones in the museum: vivid! Also really appreciate that you consider previously published poetry and that you offer a list of contests and writing
opportunities. May all those efforts bring you good karma!

December has brought us yet another fine issue. You continue to select and share excellent poems with all of us. I'm honored to be part of this one.

I'm pierced by the delicately balanced trip between past and present irresponsibility and responsibility of "From Car to Schwinn and Back Again" by Pia Taavila-Borsheim.

John, greetings from Australia. I came here to read the review of Anthony Costello's 'Angles and Visions' and stayed to check out May's poems. Most enjoyable. It appears you specialise in insightful
poems written carefully but not pretentiously. There's a clarity, and a welcome absence of mannerism. I'll link you at my poetry blogzine <a href="http://unevenfloorpoetry.blogspot.com"
target="_blank">Uneven Floor</a> (submissions always welcome!) and perhaps send you a few of my own poems. If you have a mailing list, please add me. (An RSS or Atom feed would be even
better, but I can't see one.) Keep up the good work.

Suermondt's poems in this issue, full of humor, clarity, wisdom.

Honored to have a poem in the March issue of this lovely journal. Thank you.
