Best Poem of 2017

I’m so happy to share that I recently received this award from the Lake Chapala publication, El Ojo del Lago, for the Best Poem of 2017. I am particularly pleased because the poem “Conchita at Lakeside,” (p 44 in link below) is a narrative about an elder who was my first local friend when I arrived last year, a woman whose presence every day under the eucalyptus trees has grounded my  life here in Ajijic. I am truly grateful to El Ojo del Lago for the opportunity to share her story! And gracias to Joyce Wycoff, photographer extraordinaire.

    Congratulations! Eye of the Lake? Pretty darn cool.

  • That is a great online magazine! Congratulations on the very beautiful poem. I like how, at the very end, it all vanishes just as Conchita does, including the poem.

    I couldn’t figure out how to find the poem – which I’d very much like to read. Having loved poetry all my life and written a bit as well. Where do I go?
