Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Poem in Santa Fe Literary Review

I am so pleased to have my poem, “Meeting the Great One,” included in the 2017 issue of Santa Fe Literary Review. The theme for this year’s journal was ‘Missed Connections.’ The publication is beautiful, filled with poetry, fiction and art from around the world. Besides the splendid print edition, there are two ways to read the journal online.  Searching the review’s name online will take you there. My poem is on pg. 188 — in case you want to skip ahead! I was a shy child — obviously I grew out of that aspect of my personality. The poem is about a child who is about to meet her favorite t.v. personality at a special performance, but in the end is too frightened to approach him. It is based on a true event.
