In a previous post, I mentioned my poem “The Vineyard” would appear in Heart of Flesh Literary Journal, Issue Seven. Friday, May 6, was the publication date! Please check out this issue. I got a sneak peak and found several excellent poems. I look forward to reading others. Of those I read so far, my favorite was “I Split the Afternoon” by Tiwaladeoluwa Adekunle.
I hope you also take a minute to read my poem, “The Vineyard.” It is a meditation on God’s kingdom; I use imagery from scripture to imagine the kingdom as a vineyard that flourishes and is fruitful because it grows from the death of Jesus.

If you still value printed books (as I do), please consider this and help Heart of Flesh continue their valuable contribution to poetry and spirituality.
I am grateful each time one of my poems is published. I pray readers are touched by the Lord and by whatever measure of artistry I’ve been given. My goal in writing poetry, besides creating something aesthetic, is to continue responding as the Lord stirs within.
