Mused: Portrait in Violet

MusedCurrentIssue3While I was in London, I was a little distracted so I missed that my poem Portrait in Violet had been accepted and published in Mused – the BellaOnline Literary Review. I wrote this poem on April 2nd as part of the 2018 Poem-a-Day Challenge when prompted to write a portrait poem.

I think this is the quickest turnaround for me between composition and publication.
