Climbing to a peak takes training and hard work before the actual climb. There are a scrapes and slides along the way to success. When the time comes for the actual climb, each day is it's own success. It's been a long time coming up to this moment, this first camp on the bigger climb.
It is with great excitement I announce that for the first time I have had a poem accepted for publication in a national magazine.
My poem, "Needlepoint" will be in the Fall 2016 issue of Westward Quarterly Magazine.
It is available at www.wwquarterly.com .
I hope you enjoy the poem. I hope you find your own hope for whatever mountain you're climbing. Thanks for sticking with me this far, on to the next summit.
