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!

Sarah White's poems knocked my socks off First the left sock, then the right sock.

Usha's poem is the female tsunami; Marion's pair elemental Britain. I referred two friends to The Lake; both commended Rob.

Maren Mitchell's poems are deft, surprising, intellectual, yet universal in their reach. Superb.
Maren,Your intelligence is a bright light. Your alphabet poems are stunning. Thanks.

How clever to write poems about an alphabet letter. Interesting! All the best, Glenda Barrett
Maren O. Mitchell(Wednesday, September 02 15 06:41 pm BST)
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.

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.
