Eclipse published at Sledgehammer Lit

I’m proud to announce that my poem Eclipse has been published by the Sledgehammer Literary Journal. I like that they chose to post it on the day before the December Solstice since this little poem was inspired by another astronomical event, the total solar eclipse of August 2017.

There’s also a recording of my voice reading the poem.

    I love this! And, I just realized you live in North Carolina! This poem gets straight to the gut. The ending pulls everything in and aligns it altogether. Got me a little choked up. Great poem!
