Collateral Damage — Spillwords

My gratitude to Spillwords for publishing my poem about the collateral damage of Putin’s unhinged attack on Ukraine. I have friends from Ukraine who have lost track of loved ones or who fret daily for their family and friends. The poem leads us to see that war only causes unresolved pain and grief, which eats our bones and dissolves our joints. Still we carry the hunched, bearded signs as honking cars speed by.

Collateral Damage written by: Barbara Harris Leonhard @BarbaraLeonhar4   Viktoriia’s sign, “Children are not Nazis!” My sign promotes compassion, kindness, unity. With hearts dressed in colors for Ukraine. 61 more words

Wounds I Healed: A #1 Amazon Bestseller! — Experiments in Fiction

I hope you have a chance to view this poetry reading. I teared up hearing the powerful words. The stories were so emotional that some poets didn’t want to read their work, which is understandable, so I volunteered to read for them. Reading someone else’s poetry in their presence is both intimate and healing.

Anthologies like this one help us lift each other up and build community. Sharing our grief with the world is healing. These poets tell us we are not alone. I was able to see myself in many of the stories I heard at the anthology launch today. Poetry is indeed the memoir of the soul.

An Interview about My Forthcoming Poetic Memoir

youtube.com/watch

I was so honored and delighted to be interviewed by Eri Nelson on her Vlogging Blog at She Shed Studios this evening. Eri asked me insightful questions about my book, which will be published soon by EIF (Experiments in Fiction), Ingrid Wilson’s company. “Three-Penny Memories: A Poetic Memoir”.  I have described it in a recent blog post. It is expected out this fall.

Exciting News!

Eri also asked me about how I came to write this book, my writing process in general, the importance of imagery, and other topics.

I found Eri to be a very compassionate host. Her interviews are published  in many places, like YouTube, Facebook, Linked In, and Twitter. Writers may go to her website and book a spot.

I hope you enjoy the interview, which is 20 minutes long or thereabouts. Please share! 🤗
