Yesterday the new Time Of Singing, A Magazine Of Christian Poetry arrived.

Lora Homan Zill is the Editor.

Many years ago, I found this excellent poetry print journal through Poet’s Market.  I was teaching and remember I had completed my grades, and then I stopped at a bookstore at Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois (late 1980s).

Lora included a note in the new TOS about the review I wrote for a new book by Luci Shaw.  I posted the review on Amazon.com, and the title of Luci’s book is Adventure of Ascent, Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey (IVP Books).  As Lora mentioned, former editor Charles A.

Karl and I are working on a chapbook for Quiet Christmas Poetry.  We are donating all proceeds to

A Season of Rest

falling leaves 2

The dry leaves of my old life

Must wither and fall away.

Even as the wind

Blows the dust away,

It becomes the breath of new life

Whose seeds have already been planted.

Tiny sprouts rest and grow,

Eagerly pointing toward heaven!
