Stop by The Bees Are Dead.

If you haven’t caught up with The Bees Are Dead lately, now is a good time to do so.  B.A.D. featured a particularly potent piece today by Stephen Jarrell Williams, “In the Desert.”  It’s a surprisingly effective poem despite its deceptively simple language, and I recommend it highly.

You can also find an outstanding example of prose poetry in Darren C. Demaree’s “Trump as a Fire Without Light #86.”  (This is actually one of my favorite poems submitted to B.A.D. so far, and I have no doubt that many readers both here in America and abroad will relate to its poignant social commentary.)

Be sure to peruse Wren Tuatha’s “The Trees Tell Our Future” too.  It’s a beautifully evocative poem that has stayed with me long after I read it for the first time.
