Time for a fresh harvest of daily poems that will take us from summer’s end, through fall, into winter and the start of a New Year. That’s a lot of ground to cover. Luckily we received a wonderful array of work to see us through the seasons. Thanks to everyone who chose to share their poems with us and to the international community of readers and writers who make tinywords possible.
Congratulations to Andrea Cecon and Claudette Russell who begin the issue with their winning contributions below, inspired by Michele L. Harvery’s ethereal painting “Firmament.” There were a lot of great responses, but for us these two stood out. We invite you to read through the many inspired offerings.
Thanks to Rob Colonna whose Nantucket Island beach scene serves as a contemplative backdrop for the poems in this issue. We’d also like to thank our assistant editors: Polona Oblak and John Emil Vincent, for their time and attention.
As always, we extend our deep appreciation to founding editor and publisher of tinywords Dylan Tweney who also helps read submissions and is a wiz at any technological challenge.
