Hey folks, I’ve had four poems accepted for publication recently (1 at Ideomancer, 3 at Everyday Poets), and the first is up now at Everyday Poets. The poem is a sonnet called “Amateur Astronomy” which I wrote several years ago–maybe way back in 2005, I can’t really remember any more. In any case, it was shortly before I bought an Orion 4.5 inch reflecting telescope, which I unfortunately only get to use maybe 2-3 times a year. What can I say, the conditions just aren’t so great in the Bay Area, and I don’t have time to go driving out to where it is clearer. In any case, I hope you enjoy the poem. If you like it, please rate it! 4-5 stars would be nice. 😉 Meanwhile, I’m even more excited about the other poems coming out. Look for an announcement about my sonnet “The Cabin and the Stars” in Ideomancer sometime in December (yes, another astronomy sonnet–“Amateur Astronomy” was written first, “The Cabin and the Stars” shortly after–within a month of each other, I believe).
