words + feathers + a gathering
in the snail mail this week: wonderful books.
Rose Hunter's first poetry collection to the river - 2 of the poems have previously been published in BluePrintReview, and i talked with Rose about the book in an author talk. so great to see the book now in print - it is beautiful, and came with a little extra: a stamp story by Hosho McCreesh, as part of the mlp stamp stories project.
Christine Rhein's poetry collection "Wild Flight" (feature to follow in s-Press). so glad this book arrived - we had thought it lost already. i "met" Christine through qarrtsiluni's crowd-issue, which included both my Nikolaikirche-moment and Christine's poem Sparrow's, Poet's Deaths.
also in the mail: Michael J. Solender's collection of very short prose and stories Last Winter's Leaves, published by FullofCrow, which came with a crow-booksign. i hadn't realized the feathered connection between the books until i laid them out to take a picture.
and more words and crowds:
now up in 52/250: a get-together of authors who all "Missed the Bus". my missed-bus-story is "Token" - it's based on a dream fragment.
and starting to grow in photo friday: a visual "Gathering".
