You may have noticed that the one writer whose words I do not feature in the Showcases is myself. However, if you happen to want to read some of my poetry, this reblog is a good enough place to start. It is the latest ‘short burst’ in my poetry blog. Feel free to visit and to wander through the archives.

Summer 2015 Showcase now published

cs12aJuly is the month of Liberty, some would say, or certainly of noisy and demonstrative celebration of nation and culture. On the 4th, America goes misty-eyed in the dawn’s early light. On the 12th it’s bowler hats, white gloves, and sashes on the streets of Belfast. On the 14th in France le jour de gloire est arrivé

Here at the zen space we can be quieter, but just as colourful, because the Summer 2015 Showcase is now published. It includes art by Claudia Schoenfeld, to which the poetry of our contributors are certainly not captions. To visit the showcase, either hover your pointer over ‘Experience’ and scroll down, or click here.

By the way, please let the editor know if there are any particular problems with viewing the Showcases in the browser you use. thezenspace{a}

Some interesting, exciting, and quirky ideas for future Showcases are already bubbling under, by the way…
