Just about a year ago, I alluded to a challenging experience I was dealing with. A single comment from one medical professional whom I met through that experience sparked a new poem. (You all know how that works.)
(By the way, for those of who may recall and/or share my dilemma over how to determine whether a given piece should be written as prose or as poetry, you may find this comment from the YJHM poetry editor interesting [he’s referring to both poems I submitted, although he accepted only one]: “Your poetry has a strong flavor of prose and I considered whether these poems should actually be prose poems. However, I don’t think so. The enjambment and slant rhymes make them work as verse.”)
I invite you to read my poem and, more important, to get to know the broader offerings of the YJHM.
