This photo I emailed to a magazine and it was selected for the Miscellany column in Somerset Life. I didn’t know it was picked; I had pre-ordered an issue. I was stunned when I saw my photo graced their pages. I think I will try again. Here is a link, if you would like to do the same: Stampington Submissions
At first when I see this photo, I think of late fall, early winter when the weather drives us indoors. We allow more time for reading, but summer does as well. This is why there is a summer reading list, on every morning TV news show. Winter and summer is when we must read the most, this is what the experts tell us. Book sales tell the real story! Perhaps you lie on a sandy beach and indulge yourself with a good yarn or curl up in a comfy spot at home; I would love to hear about your time of escape. We as poets are intrigued by the facets of words; we know how their dazzling brilliance attracts and eludes us. Please pen a poem about reading; you can be general or specific. Many facets of our time are not our own. Reading and writing allows the insight of our souls, to be revealed. Write a poem that expresses a favorite book you have read or your feelings of the written word.
