“Joseph” in the December 2023 Issue of Literary Mama

My poem, “Joseph,” is in the online issue of Literary Mama this December. You can find it at Http://literarymama.com. This is such a lovely journal, one of my favorites. The work captures such a range of parenting experiences as well relationships to parents past. This poem of mine describes a heart-breaking experience, but one that also includes a miracle of the kindness of strangers. I haven’t written about this very much before. One day when I was sitting at my writing/meditation table, it came through me. This version has been through some revision but not much. When we are ready to write about an experience, the words appear. Thank you, Muse! And I love you, tiny Joseph.
