Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Snapdragon: A Journal of Art and Healing

Two of my poems appear in the Summer 2015 issue of Snapdragon: “Hospice Road” and “Requiem for Lillie.”  The theme is ‘Bones and Stones.’  The Hospice one is about the tradition of carrying a stone when a person is passing and a while after as a token of remembrance and the weight of life.  The Lillie poem is about a spine and the reminiscence of the backbone of a dead horse found in a field.  Access to the journal is by subscription only ($5).  After subscribing, the editor sends a link to your email.  I enjoyed all the poetry and non-fiction pieces.  Very thoughtful.
