Before embarking on my journey to midwest and MFAs, I lived with a good friend, JCL. One night she asked me to write a poem about jacarandas (amazing trees that bloom lavish periwinkle sticky) and I did. When I got to MFA school, I was nervously turned it in for my first workshop workshop. Since then it has changed here, there, and back again. The poem, left in a drawer for many months, was rediscovered and reburied. It came out from hiding long enough to find residence in a small Canadian lit journal whose clean layout caught my eye. Poems like people are always on the move. Currently, JCL is living in South Africa, I’m in Chicago and the poem is home in Canada.
Here’s a link to the magazine: http://www.allrightsreserved.ca/wp-content/uploads/ARR-Rejuvenation.pdf
While you are there you can check out the page before (another flower poem of mine) and the cover of journal is quite pleasing to the eye, I do believe.
