DANIEL'S DAILY WORDS

  • HAVE MERCY CHILDREN, MERCY ON ME

    I have waited for months for the late announcement, concerning who were the next 50 Best New Poets chosen for the 2016 anthology, and today I discovered the absence of my name.

                           One hour later exactly, I found out that New South Poetry Journal of the University of Georgia will publish my 7 part poem, "Psalmania," and Weber Review of Weber State University will publish my poems, "In Absentia," and "Sabbath."

    What does this all really mean, I am too overwhelmed to know. But oh, oh, oh, how the sweet endorphins flow. I am opened wider by them making my gifts their own, and allowing those words to do MAGIC in the world, just as they've done in me. I will keep you all posted with release dates, since all three will be both in print and on line.
