Friends of Silence


Warm thanks to Linda DeGraf for republishing a poem of mine
in the May 2015 issue of the Friends of Silence newsletter (Vol. XXVIII, No. 5).
The poem, also available in the newsletter’s print edition,
previously appeared in the Spring 2015 issue of Akitsu Quarterly.


We are also, this morning, in receipt of this touching dedication,
which comes on the wings of C.P. Cavafy,

“ . . . the image of which
crossed twenty-six years; and has come now
to remain in this poetry.”

Thank you, Monika, for your gracious thought.

Ah, 'tis lovely. Friends to Silence, what a wonderful idea. Luckily, quiet enough this afternoon for me to hear your well-chosen words.
