Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry

I am reading the Spring 2017 issue of Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry.  Lora Homan Zill is Editor.  Contributing Editors for this issue are Cleo Griffith and Violet Nesdoly.  Photos in the issue are by Patricia Jackson Conway.

Time Of Singing is a print journal.  I have shared TOS with others over the years, and continue to receive notes of appreciation.

My mother wrote page numbers on the covers, to note publications of my poems.  I have these issues now, and they are special remembrances of my mother’s encouragement.

Poetry is a gift that is appreciated and grows in meaning over time.

You can read more at the TOS site.  Audrey Stallsmith is Webmaster.

Each issue is a work of art.  Thought it would be good to write a post for National Poetry Month.

Favorite Poem

EASTER DINNER

The background is red
Her hair has become silver
And her dress is rust.
Her smile these days is pure gold
And her eyes sparkle anew.

Ellen Grace Olinger

This is a favorite poem, written for my mother a long time ago.  It was published first in Time Of Singing.
