I’m so grateful to have my poem “Paused” published in Juniper – A Poetry Journal’s current Summer 2020 issue. “Paused” is a reflection on the changes I’ve felt during the pandemic–the new way of approaching daily tasks that once felt burdensome, now bring a new perspective on slowing down, re-evaluating how I spend my time, and the little things that once caused undue stress now seem almost joyous in comparison to the state of the world.
The issue includes a lovely variety of poems and is worth spending some time reading through. You can also check out my poem “glass-bottom boat” published in last year’s Summer 2019 issue.
Juniper is a new online poetry journal, published three times a year, in February, June and October. I love the simple, yet pleasing design of this web-based journal. It's easy to navigate and easy to read. You can read more about Juniper in my interview with founding editor Lisa Young. They reopen for submissions September 1.
