Aeolian Harp Series, Volume 8, 2022 Anthology edited by Ami Kaye & Gloria Mindock
FORWORD GLORIA MINDOCK, GUEST EDITOR
There is so much happening in the world: the war in Ukraine, the pandemic, on top of what our own personal lives confront. To handle it all, we writers look to life around us as well as our own.
Full of distinct voices doing just that, this anthology is an eclectic volume of poetry that will hold its readers captive through emotion, imagery, word play, and beauty. Some writers write about their experiences, life events, family, while others intrigue us with their amazing play with language and form.
Each poem flows from beginning, to middle, and ends so naturally it could be made into a short film. Writer Nicole Greaves states, "I choose to create, which is my power." Each poet writes about things from their own perspective, with music that embraces the poem and unifies its stanzas. Poems, like fingers on a keyboard, play with us to bring out their unique melodies. Sharon Alexander, a poet included in this anthology states, "The joy, for me, is when the poem sings, that moment when the poem takes on a life of its own."
So yes, open this volume to be woven into the landscape. Let its poems bring you to a new place, singing.
