“Coming of age” and “Those that throw stones” by Barbara Turney Wieland

Coming of age

laid bare in declining years
slack
lackluster
acts
dropped
slack
drooping
truth
naked
slack
in declining years laid bare

***

Those that throw stones

stone teardrop tears the silence
cracked
patter
peace
shattered
cracked
mirror
cried
pride
cracked
stone-silence tears the tear: drops

The Skinny Poetry Journal Call for Submissions

The Skinny Poetry Journal Call for Submissions

benschili.0.0

The Skinny Poetry Journal (TSPJ) seeks new poetry. TSPJ is a literary journal that is dedicated to The Skinny poetry form (and edited by a rotating team of poets). A Skinny is a short poem form, created by Truth Thomas, that consists of eleven lines. The first and eleventh lines can be any length (although shorter lines are favored). The eleventh and last line must be repeated using the same words from the first and opening line (however, those words can be rearranged). The second, sixth, and tenth lines must be identical.

The point of the Skinny, or Skinnys, is to convey a vivid image with as few words as possible. Skinny poems can be about any subject. They can also be linked, like Haiku, Senryu or Tanka. To submit your work for publishing consideration, email it to: theskinnypoetryjournal@gmail.com with your poem, or poems, copied into the body of your email.
