Last night was a sad night. Last night was a joyous night. WILD APPLES, a journal of nature, art, and inquiry launched its eighth issue at the Harvard Massachusetts Public Library. It was a celebration of four years of collaborative work and achievement. The meeting room overflowed with poets and writers and friends who wished the Wild Apples’ Group the best for the future. A feeling of friendship and hope filled the room. It was quite evident to me that this group worked well with each and would miss producing the magazine but also… there was a feeling of possibility for the future.
Poets from the Louise Bogan Chapter of MSPS joined the festive atmosphere and were inspired to continue their bond with each other. Next month the LB Chapter will celebrate their one year anniversary. They will discuss poetry and poems as they always do but it will be with a new commitment to themselves and to the value of poetry. The Louise Bogan Chapter of MSPS thanks Linda Hoffman, Kathryn Lebowitz, and Susan Edwards Richmond for their fine workmanship.
