I was happy to see Bell’s Letters Poet, Issue 133, in yesterday’s mail. In addition to poems, it includes many other features, for example, the BL Network, Addresses, Ratings (if you wish to vote for favorite poems), and Awards.
Jim Bell, the Editor, reprinted a poem of mine; and as we sense Autumn around the corner, this might be a little poem to share with someone who is learning a new life chapter following loss, perhaps during the holidays. This was written for my mother, during the first year of grief, in 2004. All is well and my heart is full.
