Pushcart Prize Nomination

Pushcart Prize

I received notification that I have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize in Poetry. Roberta Beach Jacobson, Editor of Cold Moon Journal, emailed me this week with the good news. It is quite an honor to be nominated by The Pushcart Prize organization which has been publishing the Best of Small Presses since 1976.

Cold Moon Journal

The poem which she nominated was written in tribute to “Lonesome George”, who was at the time, the oldest giant tortoise on the Galapagos Islands. We were privileged to meet him.

Lonesome George

Tragically, the ancient reptile died a few weeks after our visit. His story lives on in my haiku.
