My work in the new anthology of Fabrizio Frosini and Poets Unite Worldwide.

“POETRY FOR THE WINTER”… The poems in this compilation have moved me in different ways. Sometimes it is just a line, sometimes a flash of humor and others where the whole poem affects me deeply. Such a poem is written by Kenneth Maswabi, dealing with the terror inflicted upon the homeless during the Winter months. Another poem, “Mount Fuji,” by its precision conjures up a Japanese landscape and ends with it is an image full of charm:
“At the shrine, white papers flutter / In the wistful winter wind.”
In other poems humorous and fun aspects of Winter are covered in lines such as: “Winter is the season of the year that you sneeze and freeze” or “warm snowballs make friendly darts.”
Sometimes a poet poses an intelligent question (is winter) “a beginning or an end.. ” —and, in my view, the beauty of Winter is in both.
Winter can also be viewed as a waiting time and Glen Kappy captures this feeling succinctly in one of a series of short poems: “In the park, / Few people, dry grass. / Bare trees. All waits.”
There are many lines and images I like: “Families round the fireplace / cheer and huddle.” for instance. And there is a particularly fine poem about Athens in the snow. But, you know, dear reader, the best thing you can do is explore for yourself. Your taste is different and I can assure you: you will find many gems to your liking.
