#Poetry Publication: “At Summer’s End”

I’m delighted to share that my poem, “At Summer’s End,” has been published in the June 2020 edition of North of Oxford: “At Summer’s End.”

The poem was inspired by a late summer day at Fort Foster on the coast of Kittery, Maine. My eye was caught by a bank of beach roses that didn’t look right to me. They were the wrong shape, the wrong size, and the wrong color. The following images represent how the poem unfolded.
