Stand with Me Published at Edge of Humanity

I am pleased to announce that Edge of Humanity Magazine has published an old poem of mine, Stand With Me. Once again, I strongly encourage all my readers check it out and follow their excellent site.

Here’s the first stanza of four, to whet your appetite:

Stand with me
while wildfires race the wind
and ash clouds the sky.
I’ll wipe your tears.

( I just noticed both this poem and last week’s publication at Edge of Humanity start with the word “Stand”. More than coincidence?)
