This month 3 of my poems have been published in Jellyfish Whispers. The magazine showcases nature-themed verse, a fitting home for my environmental batch this time round. Hard not to think about climate change when we’re (reportedly) in for another chilly winter for the second year in a row.


The editor of Jellyfish Whispers, A. J. Huffman, describes how as a resident of the Sunshine State, her heart belongs to the sea. Indeed, the sea is a constant source of inspiration for many poets. As for me, I tend not to think of sunny shores with palm trees and cocktails (only as far as my next holiday goes!) but rather desolate beaches in winter. What is beyond the barren grey sand and huge, icy waves? Melodramatic thoughts, perhaps. Why not! Tis the season for reflection as the end of the year approaches. At least this year, it isn’t Armaggedon (see my post from Dec 21 last year for more on this topic!).

Jellyfish Whispers is a magazine published by Kind of a Hurricane Press. Some of my fiction has appeared in another of A. J. Huffman’s magazines, Pound of Flash. Joseph Robert’s poems have also appeared in Pyrokinection Magazine and in a recent anthology run by Kind of a Hurricane Press, Insert Coin Here.
