To all followers:
My poem “9 November 1938″ is now available at poeticamagazine.com under the HOLOCAUST tab. Even if you are not Jewish, the Holocaust resonates with most sane individuals as one of history’s greatest tragedies. My work discusses the horror of an event known as “Kristallnacht” or “Crystal Night” when Jewish homes and businesses were ransacked and destroyed and all the glass was shattered.
The other poems under this tab share sentiments of pain and suffering and yet I find a glimmer of hope. In any dark time, there needs to be hope. We can only hope such a tragedy will never happen again.
I also thank Facebook because I found the magazine in their midst, perused their website, and offered some submissions. This old guy who used to frequent coffee houses and bars in Boston to commiserate with fellow poets has now found a new form of social networking.
Thanks, so far, to those of you who have followed this blog because you have been equally motivational and deserve the appropriate kudos.
