This morning I’m happy to share that my poem “The Solitary Birch” is in the January issue of “Verse-Virtual”. It was inspired by the memory of a single birch tree on a hillside, seen out the window of the Amtrak train taking me from the Philadelphia 30th St. train station to Lynchburg, Virginia. I was on the way to my most recent residency at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts (VCCA), and this was one of the first poems I wrote after arrival. I hope you enjoy it along with all the other fine poems in this month’s issue.
