Thanks to editor Angelique Jamail, my poem “Prayers for Everywhere” appears on her site Sappho’s Torque today. I’m delighted that it appears on the weekend of Passover and Easter, as I think prayers should be borderless and expansive, helpful to all, everywhere. Which is where the poem started, actually. The poem is from my book Gods of Water and Air (reviewed on The Pedestal).

Happy Easter, happy April, and have a poetic day! Buy or pick some roses if you can.
