Published Again

The Canadian Jewish News is a weekly newspaper that caters guessed it...the Canadian Jewish community. Each Passover issue features a literary supplement, and as long as I've been submitting my poetry, it's been published.

This year I submitted two personal poems (whatever is submitted has to have a Jewish bent to it -- DUH!) and both will appear in this week's print edition, and is also online.

One poem is about my husband, and what happened when he lost his mother. The other poem is about my father: simply about the man he was.

If you click on the title of this post, you can link to the online edition of the newspaper. There you should find my two poems on pages B2 and B12.

I loved them both! The one about your dad almost made me cry. He was very wise.

Thank you all.
The poem about my dad means a lot to me: it truly represents his ethics and morals that he carried through life.
The other poem was written with my husband in mind, after he lost his mom, and began to say Kaddish. It changes one's life.
