As I mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been in a very poetic mood lately. Writing a new poem every few days.
I’ve since submitted several pieces to literary magazines, contests, and publishers in the hopes that I can make some headway on my goal of 5-in-28. [See: Who, me? for details.]
Since I can’t share the full poems on here [1st rights to publishing, and all] I did want to share a tiny excerpt on here for thoughts, feedback, and criticism.
Here’s a small sampling of a poem I wrote about my wedding day:
Your heart is my respite,
I’ve found my absolution –
You’ve given up the fight!
No longer will I search the seas,
For the greatest of the fish –
For in my net,
The trap is set –
You’re more than I could wish.
More to come! Meanwhile, I wait anxiously to hear back on my submissions.
Leap of faith,
~ Victoria Elizabeth Ann
