Springing Back into Action (or some other more impressive seasonal pun)

I’ve been flying below the radar for several months now – no new publications to announce and hardly any poems completed. One of the reasons for this has been art.

I find it difficult to juggle my interests, so I occasionally devote a disproportionate amount of time to one while neglecting another. Though I haven’t produced many poems since last summer, I have completed six new pieces of art in my ongoing exploration of pi (3.14 etc.). I’ve been meaning to buy a few frames and take some proper photographs, but impatience has gotten the better of me again, so here are some low quality phone photos just to give you a sense of what I’ve been working on.

Fortunately, things have turned around for my writing as well. I’ve recently completed three new poems. Three of my other poems and two of my photos are appearing in the June edition of Verse-Virtual. Another is about to be featured in the Seethingography blog. And yet another piece, which was previously included in Kind of a Hurricane Press‘s Twice Upon a Time anthology, is also going to appear in their 2015 Storm Cycle “Best of” anthology. That’s right, back in the proverbial saddle once again! Just a reminder: two of my poems should be appearing later this year in Elbow Room as well, so keep an eye out for that.
