Are you interested in reading an attractive online poetry zine? Take a look at the seasonal-themed Winter 2006 Crescent Moon Journal.

Sarah Sloat (one of my favorite creative types!) served as art director for this issue. The photography is stunning and features work by Jill Burhans, Carlo Del Prete, Benoit Jolivet, Arnoldas Jurgaitis, and Stephen R. Ward. Look for poetry by Arlene Ang, Jude Goodwin, Bernie Henrie, Guy Kettelhack, and many others.

Here's my own modest contribution to the issue:

Signing a Watercolor, 3am

In the woods
there's a blanket - there
since September -

past my reflection,
my window, the garden
in winter, the gate to the grove.

Beyond the gate,
the moon holds onto honeysuckle
while hardwoods nod
a lullaby with butterscotched limbs.

All things wait to sleep,
and autumn is a persistent leaf -
brushing her name

with lips on my skin.

Thanks for saying so, Amanda.

I'll pass the compliment along to Sarah. I'm sure she'll be thrilled.
