Report from over the edge
(falling or flying?)
Actors on this mundane stage
(in prelude to dying)

Revel in our role as mobile mud,
immersive experience.

Dutifully capped in belief
we would spew
pent-up poison
But, taste!
Fortified water vital
with mineral dust.

Awake, world within
moves sanely.
Renewable lake, safe to trust,
pours through this core.
Pain soothed to prophecy:
apocalyptic healing --
cleansing vision
each from within.

visionary arts and minds on Ning

All this energy whirls around, whirls around, insists on movement
See what we can find, create, intermingle
Just a thought, streaming through imagination
Take a little trip, a grand tourage, or what you may

foam:e 7 is live!

I'm really pleased to announce that foam:e 7 edition is online now. Just a little late but worth the wait I think. This edition is the second one edited by me, foam:e 5 being the first.

Editing is a wonderful experience full of angst, joy and some special ah-ha moments that come along. I know that my own poetry continues to improve as I take some time discovering the large and diverse range of poetries on offer.

Contributors for this issue include many well known Australian and International poets and also some not so well known. All of the poets contributing to this issue are actively involved with making and supporting poetry and that involvement (can we call poetry involvement love)creates a fresh and vibrant poetics.

A real surprise for contributors.
The next issue of foam:e will be edited by expat Aussie poet Laurie Duggan, now living in England. Laurie will bring a lifetime of professional poetics and experience to his edition.
I know you will send him some really special work. cheers for foam:e 7... poetry to puzzle, query, celebrate and enjoy!
