Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Two Poems in Mom Egg Review

Volume 20 of the Mom Egg Review is centered around the theme of ‘Mother Figures.’ Two of my poems are included. One is entitled “Night Nurse” and is about those who care for others in the quiet hours and how these nurses, female or male/old or young – become the comfort the sick and dying need. The other poem is titled “Mokosh” and describes my maiden name Slavic goddess that I often write about. I love Mokosh because she is an earthy girl without temples or specific worship who comes to help with daily matters. Her symbol is a breast shaped stone and her feast day is any Friday.

It is especially wonderful to have my work included in this issue since 3 other poets that I know well and respect greatly are also here: Libby Maxey, Susan Rich and Francesca Bell. Thank you, Mom Egg Editors and staff!
