Welcome to Issue 21!

It's  impossible for us not to feel sentimental as we round the corner into a new year. 

So much has happened since our inaugural issue in 2014—too much to mention here. But when we look back at the 20 issues we've published prior to this one, we can hardly believe how many brilliant poets and artists we've had a chance to showcase on these pages. Thank you all for elevating us with your creativity.

Issue 21 does not disappoint. Among other delights, there are poems that will make you long for summer's lush landscape, poems that reveal secrets frozen into a winter scene, and, of course, the endless fascination with love and death. There are two lovely surprises in the audio files this time around—check out “Schubert's Moments Musicaux No. 2” and “Dispersed” to discover these treasures.

As always, enjoy the sights and sounds of this issue. We promise more good things to come!
