I am delighted to share my poem, Parallel, is published in Volume 07, Chapter 12 of Visual Verse’s monthly ongoing anthology!
Each month Visual Verse shares an image and publishes the best of writing inspired by the photo. It is one of my favorite online poetic collections; each new chapter brings new thoughts and wonder at the many different ways people see the same picture.
I enjoy challenging myself to stretch my imagination and write of the expected in unexpected ways. I have learned not to write not for the generic market but for my community; those people who connect with the odd tips and stories I weave into my writing.
Be original. Be you.
Have confidence in what you write. Put yourself into your ideas. Share things that you love to do or things that work for you and say why. Do not be another parallel lost in a sea of the same titles. Be a remarkable parallel that shines!
I invite you to enjoy Parallel and hope it shines for you.
