All week with my hands digging into the soil. Springtime in Virginia means mulch and more mulch, birds chirping, squiggly worms, robin eggs, bunnies, and so much chatter in my enchanted forest. It feels as though the very trees hold secrets within each root and whisper stories if you but take the time to listen. And if my secret garden played the violin, it would song like this: LINK
Hold a poem with your bear hands just by digging in the dirt.
What a sensation to see Ashes to Ashes make it into the hands of dear Astra Papachristodoulou EIC of Poem Atlas. It's a full circle as Poem Atlas was the first journal (non-military affiliated) to accept my submissions and go onto show some of my ash poems inside their object poetry exhibitions and add Poetry Egg and Cutie Saurus into the AWW-STRUCK journal.
Follow Astra and Poem Atlas on Twitter and Instagram.
So, the lovely Astra got some mail from Paper View and what a stunning arrangement (image from her Twitter). Today, let's talk about Kate Siklosi's Conjure. This is one of those instant classics. It weaves magic, movement, chance, and torn bits of book together into a potion.

It's not just because he is my cousin that I LOVE his art. Scott Hare is a master craftsman and anyone can see and feel the attention to detail he puts into each piece (including this gorgeous carved calabash on the poster). Stop by and see him this week. Be sure to tell him that his cousin Maggs sends Aloha from Virginia.

Damien Donnelly returned to Ireland in 2019 after 23 years in Paris, London and Amsterdam, working in the fashion industry as a pattern maker for various brands including Calvin Klein, & Other Stories, Pepe Jeans, Reiss and G-Star. His writing focuses on identity, fragility and connection. His interests revolve around falling over and learning how to get back up while baking delicious cakes. His work had been published in numerous journals online and in print including Black Bough Poetry, Barren Magazine, Anti Hereon Chic, Icefloe Press and The Bangor Literary Journal. His debut poetry pamphlet Eat the Storms, which was featured on the Poetry Book Society Winter List 2020/21 and his Stickleback micro collection Considering Canvases with Boys were both published by The Hedgehog Poetry Press. Both were nominated for Pushcart Prizes. In the Jitterfritz of Neon was published, also by The Hedgehog Poetry Press, in 2022, a conversational poetry pamphlet he co-wrote with Eilín de Paor. His first full poetry collection Enough! documenting his love affair with Paris will be out later in 2022 followed by Back From Away in 2023, another full collection."
