I have subscribed to a few poetry print journals for years.
Two examples are Time Of Singing A Journal Of Christian Poetry, and WestWard Quarterly The Magazine of Family Reading.
There are several current issues of both journals by the chair where I read in my small study. So many ways to read. I read poems in sequence, and know editors are so thoughtful about how a journal or magazine is created. Sometimes I may read a poem by a poet several times, and then look at other issues for more work by the poet. Over time, I may note the work of a given poet online and other journals. There may be a book I can buy someday. Or while I look forward to the Summer issue for this year, I may look back at previous summers; or catch up with issues that I was not able to read when they first arrived. Nice to have a small home library, where I can browse, grown over time. Still growing, and always more to learn.
There are so many good books, blogs, and journals. Always grateful.

Time of Singing, Spring 2014
R ose clouds at sunrise, and the day
O pens to songs, silence, and new
S trength, with hope
ROSE acrostic poem
through small spaces
in the clouds
how new dreams
sunrise . . .
for the chrysanthemum
“sunrise . . .” was published in hedgerow #133. Caroline Skanne is Editor.
Today I am reading again from Time Of Singing, Summer 2021. Darlene Moore Berg is one of the poets in this issue. Her site is Darlene’s Poetical Pursuits.
Violet Nesdoly is another poet I know from TOS, over the years. Her site is Violet Nesdoly author – writer – artist. This week I received Violet’s beautiful art cards that I ordered from her ETSY shop, VioletNesdolyArt.
