There’ll be time to go “Plop” later!
… better late than never!
We have some absolute delights for you this time, and a complete mixture of poetic and prose forms, which is something I have been aiming for since the zen space began. And do you know what? It’s our sixth birthday! the zen space has been going for six years.
In order to read the new Showcase, hover your cursor over the ‘Experience’ tab, and scroll down the drop-down menu. Alternatively, you can click here.
Time to blow out some candles!
Yes, thank you Salvador, I know the clock is melting. You don’t have to tell me!
I’ve never allowed a publication date to slip by before, here at the zen space, but a combination of circumstances will mean that this one will be a handful of days late. Can’t say precisely when it will appear, but you may rest assured that it won’t be more than a few days after the normal date. I have some wonderful submissions to consider in the mean time. Thank you all for sending them in.
editor, the zen space.
Spring has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere, March has come in like a lion and gone out like a lamb, April is here!
With this month comes a new Showcase here at the zen space. You can see it by hovering your mouse over the ‘Experience’ tab and scrolling down. Alternatively you can click here.
I hope you enjoy your visit.

A final word on 2016 is below, thanks to Autumn Noelle Hall.
Meanwhile, 2017 has arrived at last, and with it a new Showcase of haiku and other short bursts of poetry. To visit, either over your pointer over the ‘Experience’ tab and scroll down to the bottom, or click here.
Best wishes to all readers and writers.

… we have Ray Sharp as Guest Editor. Ray is one of the good guys of poetry. He’s from Michigan, from the shores of Lake Superior in fact, which he calls “a land of long snowy winters and brief glorious summers”.
Any submissions coming in in the next month or so will be forwarded to Ray. One of his tasks, as guest editor, will be to seek out new names, new talent for the zen space, so he will be making enquiries of his own.
We still have the suggested theme of ‘mountain’, but we also have a fine reservoir of poems outside that theme. Ray has all but insisted that I submit something myself. I’m toying with the idea, even though it would break my unwritten policy of not making the zen space a self-centred farrago. What do you think?
Anyhow, stay tuned, keep that dial locked to WTZS, Stanton, Michigan…
