“Holy Week” was published in Time Of Singing (Spring 2014).

I included these haiku in my post, Short Poems For Lent And Easter, on my site, Easter And Spring Poetry.

TIME Of SINGING – Winter 2014/15

Today is a quiet day with a blue sky, and sun on the evergreens and birch trees.

I’m reading the new Time Of Singing (TOS).

In her Editor’s Aria, Lora Homan Zill explains that as of Spring 2015, the subtitle for TOS will be “A Journal Of Christian Poetry”  in order to best reflect Time Of Singing these days (as opposed to a magazine).

Lora Zill adds, “TOS will stay the same, a special community of poets who explore the great themes of our faith and life.”  Her complete Editor’s Aria for Winter 2014 is posted at the TOS site.

Audrey Stallsmith is the Webmaster for Time Of Singing, which also has a Facebook page.

One of my goals when I began with WordPress in December 2009 was to thank the editors and poetry print journals where my work has been published.

Time Of Singing: A Journal Of Christian Poetry – Post updated 2/4/2015

As many of you know, TIME OF SINGING (TOS), was one of the first poetry journals to accept my work.  It can take time for a poem to find its home, and TOS is very special to me.

Benjamin P. Browne was the Founder; Charles A. Waugaman edited for years; Lora H. Zill has now been the editor for many years.  I think I began subscribing in 1989.

Lora has kept the price affordable.  I look forward to four issues a year, and each is a work of art.

You can link to the TOS Facebook page, from the site if you wish.

Charles Waugaman was called Home in 2010.  Lora honored his legacy in every issue for a full year, by reprinting his poems and illustrations.

This year, I thought I’d reread past Winter issues of TIME OF SINGING.  Today I’m enjoying the December 1997 issue. In his Editor’s Aria, Charles said, “We know to consider the Incarnation of Christ, one has to deal with the whole Bible…Each year, each day, each reading, I realize anew how much of a piece is our scripture.”
