In the Rusting Sky – a poem in Visual Verse

I’ve been submitting poems to the Visual Verse online anthology since  2016,  and am delighted to have another poem featured in the February 2020  issue, Vol. 7, Chapter 4.  The inspiration is an amazing image by Omid Armin. As you will see, I’m in great company, with Jane Dougherty featured on the previous page. You can find my poem on page 9 or you can link directly to the poem, entitled ‘In the Rusting Sky’.

  2. The whole poem has me aching for the person, such flecks of lucidity in the disorientation. My favorite lines:
    “I am suspended between broken sky
    and a pavement soaked with tears,”
    Congratulations on being published in the current volume!!!!

  3. Congratulations, Kim, for having your poem published. What an amazing photo–I couldn’t quite get my bearings for a few moments–what was I looking at, upside down or right side up?! Your poem gave me the feeling of someone perhaps with dementia wandering lost on the street.

  4. Congratulations on the publication of you poem. I liked your ending… and begin to wander closer to sanity. I think we all try to land from time to time and move closer to sainity. Doesn’t always seem to work.
