My copy of the Eber & Wein anthology (Where the Mind Dwells – Consolation) just came in the mail! I have one poem in this anthology. My piece is a contemplation of time. I thought about how it is divided, measure, and categorized. This piece shows how I relate to each day. After giving some thought to the passage of time, it began to feel different. The end result was my piece, The Day Constant.
After a poetry workshop, I worked several more revisions and finally settled on the expression that captured my meaning/message. I really enjoy contemplating themes such as time, nature, humanity, religion and sensitivity that effect the world. I try to imagine what effects are being felt from them. My piece, The Day constant, is the conflation of time and space. It is the bisection of past and future. It doesn’t immediately measure anything instead, it can be read as a magnification of the ideas of measurement. The distance between past, present and future might be seen as negligible.
I am very grateful that the editors found my piece enjoyable enough to include in this anthology and would very much enjoy the opportunity to have another included in future publications. If you have not already experienced Eber & Wein’s anthology publications do yourself a favor and check them out at Amazon.
