Poem “Blue Sky through Bare Branches” reprinted today at The Elixir Magazine!!!

August 8, 2019 – Poem “Blue Sky through Bare Branches” was reprinted today at The Elixir Magazine. This piece holds a great deal of sentimental value as it is the first one that was officially accepted for publication (at Foliate Oak Magazine). Still a favorite of mine today…and always.
