Last week my mother called me up on Wednesday and said she'd seen my poem in the Jewish news and that it was very nice.
I knew I'd submitted a poem to be considered for the annual Passover literary supplement to the Canadian Jewish News, but couldn't remember which one I'd submitted!
And when I saw it, I remembered; I'd actually written the poem sometime last year and posted it on my blog, then this past February submitted it to the CJN.
The poem is based on an incident that happened to me; it is truth patterned in a poetic style is all.
Oftentimes that's what poetry is. At least my poetry.
It is nice to get published once again. To have my words published in a venue that means something to me, in a venue that is accessible to so many people in Canada, the States and abroad.
Here is the link: http://www.cjnews.com/images/stories/Supplements/2008_Passover_Lit.pdf
Find your way to page 22 of the supplement and you will find my poem. (The Montreal edition of the literary supplement has my poem appear on a different page with a slightly different layout, because of the advertising.)
